Woodlawn

Community Area: Woodlawn

Everyone loves a good comeback story. This is Woodlawn’s. The South Side neighborhood, overlooked far too long, is in the midst of a major revival.

The South Side neighborhood is finally getting the attention it deserves with its prime location near the lake, museums, the University of Chicago and President Barack Obama’s presidential library site.

Woodlawn is surrounded by beautiful parks including Washington Park with a Tiger Woods redesigned golf course; and Jackson Park, site of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition and home to the largest and oldest beach house in the city.

The neighborhood is accessible by the Green Line L and Metra with access to Lake Shore Drive and expressways.

While there is some existing housing stock, including tidy brick two-flats, the real story here is after decades of being overlooked, there’s a lot of open land just waiting to be developed.

Tax incentives initially got the construction ball rolling, eventually picking up steam, attracting more developers and bigger projects.

Several new projects are underway including single-family homes, town homes and condominiums. Construction is ongoing on everything from new University residence halls to mixed-use complexes with retail spaces and affordable housing options.

High school students attend Hyde Park Career Academy and the all-boys Catholic Mount Carmel High School in the neighborhood.
