Once an old manufacturing and warehouse area, River North is now Chicago’s most fashionable and trendsetting neighborhood. Historic architecture is beautifully melded with modern design and amenities, and it’s only steps away to the city’s shopping along Michigan Avenue.
One of the neighborhood’s biggest assets is its walk-to-work appeal; residents can quickly get to the office in the morning and just as easily find themselves at a popular bar after hours.
The round-the-clock atmosphere attracts people from all over, 24/7.
Due to its downtown location and lack of single-family homes, it can be difficult settling down with a brood here. But it’s perfect for those looking to absorb all the city has to offer sans young children.
Most buildings are an enticing mix of mid-rise, turn-of-the-century lofts as well as coveted condos and rentals in high-rises with skyline views, all at skyward price points.
Some of Chicago’s oldest buildings still stand here as symbolic reminders of the city’s rebirth after the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. The bridges and riverwalk offer incredible perspectives of these soaring, iconic structures, so be sure to look up for a moment when traversing from shop to shop.
Heralded as one of the most innovative Realtors in the Chicagoland area, The Oertel Group is laden with accomplishments.
