About East Ukrainian Village
You know a neighborhood has reached a certain level of cool when it adopts a new name. Such is the case with East Village, the neighborhood formally known as East Ukrainian Village.
Just 10 minutes from The Loop and a few blocks from Wicker Park, the East Village is enjoying a rebirth, attracting Chicagoans seeking homes that are in close proximity to everything they love about the city.
The mostly residential neighborhood is surrounded by a lively commercial area with a variety of eateries, bars and shops.
Housing options include single-family homes, condominiums, two- and three-flat greystones as well as small cottages. To preserve the neighborhood’s character, the blocks bounded by Division, Chicago, Hermitage and Damen have been designated a Chicago Landmark District and placed on the National Register of Historic places.
A new wave of transit-oriented developments (TOD) is underway, including a historic art deco church that was saved from demolition and converted into apartments with rooftop decks and amazing views. Locals can take advantage of the bike lanes along Milwaukee Avenue as well as the multiple CTA bus routes and nearby Blue Line stop on Division. They can also hop on the expressway for easy traveling to The Loop or suburbs.
