West Town

Community Area: West Town

Comprised of several distinct Chicago neighborhoods just northwest of the Loop, West Town is a thriving community that has experienced extensive development over the last decade. Bordered by Bloomingdale Avenue to the North, Kinzie Street to the South, the Chicago River to the East, and Kedzie Street to the West, the community includes the neighborhoods of Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, East Village, River West, Fulton River District, Noble Square, East Humboldt Park and part of Bucktown.

West Town features an assortment of housing styles and price ranges. Condominiums take the form of vintage walk-ups, rustic lofts and new-construction three-flats and mid-rises. Single-family homes range from smaller cottages and bungalows (often prime candidates for tear-downs) to gut-rehabbed greystones, historic mansions and eye-popping multi-million-dollar new construction.

With an eclectic mix of hip cafes, independent bookstores, raucous bars, expensive boutiques, art galleries, music venues and peaceful city parks, West Town appeals to a variety of lifestyles. Over the last several years, the community has seen an influx of trendy eateries, bars and boutiques pop up along Division Street, Chicago Avenue, Grand Avenue and Damen Avenue, making it a popular destination for shoppers in search of the hottest fashions, and for foodies in search of a variety of cuisine from French bistro to sushi. Each year, locals enjoy a number of festivals including Do Division Street Fest, West Fest, Renegade Craft Fair and the West Town Art Walk.
