Currently in the midst of a major revival, Woodlawn is finally getting the attention it deserves.
The South Side neighborhood boasts a prime location near the lake and is surrounded by two beautiful parks, Washington Park and Jackson Park. Woodlawn is also home to several museums, the University of Chicago and the planned Obama Presidential Library. It has the largest and oldest beach house in the city and was previously the site of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition.
While there is some existing housing stock, including tidy brick two-flats, there’s a lot of open land just waiting to be developed. Construction in the area has picked up steam and attracted more developers and bigger projects over the years.
Several new projects are underway including single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums. There is ongoing construction on everything from new university residence halls to mixed-use complexes with retail spaces.
Woodlawn is accessible by public transportation, including the CTA Green Line and Metra, as well as nearby Lake Shore Drive and the expressway.
