Magnificent Mile

Community Area: Near North Side

The Magnificent Mile lives up to its name. The upscale stretch of North Michigan Avenue is known as one of the most vibrant commercial and cultural destinations in the world.

Skyscrapers, landmark architecture and high-end retailers line the streets, extending north to Oak Street and south to the Chicago River. Only steps from Lake Michigan, the Magnificent Mile is also home to world-class hotels and prestigious education and medical facilities.

The concept for the Magnificent Mile was part of the 1909 Burnham Plan of Chicago, and the district was ultimately named in the 1940s. The Magnificent Mile is steeped in Chicago cultural history, with nearly a dozen buildings that are Chicago Landmarks, National Historic Landmarks or listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Some of the world's tallest buildings are located here, including 875 North Michigan Avenue, the building formerly known as the John Hancock Center.

In the Magnificent Mile district, residents live in luxury condominiums and contemporary high-rises with all the modern amenities. Public transportation is plentiful with numerous bus lines running up and down Michigan Avenue.
