New East Side

Community Area: Loop

The New Eastside neighborhood has risen above its humble beginnings as a rail yard to become a vibrant and upscale high-rise haven.

The neighborhood has been official since 1991, when the New Eastside Association of Residents (NEAR) was recognized and is one of several popular areas in or near The Loop.

Formerly home to the Illinois Central rail yards, the New Eastside is a mixed-use district that encompasses the Illinois Center and Lakeshore East. Early developments include the Aon Center and One Prudential Plaza, which used their airway rights to build above the railroad tracks.

The area is sought after for its convenient location, architecture, and amenities. Residents enjoy world-class parks, theater, shopping, bars, and restaurants with easy access to businesses in The Loop or a day at the beach.

Homes include high-rise condominiums that offer incredible views and amenities. During the winter, the Pedway makes getting through downtown a breeze, and commuters have access to numerous buses, trains, and the Metra.
