Streeterville

Streeterville is luxury high-rise central, although there are elegant graystones, brownstones, and boutique buildings sprinkled throughout the district. Most buildings offer luxury amenities that go beyond the obligatory pool and gym and could include a 24-hour doorman, parking attendants, and an array of concierge services that can encompass everything from pet spas to medical concierge services.

Welcome to Streeterville

Residents Love:

  • Living in the gateway to all of Chicago's culture, nightlife, and business centers
  • Having a walk-to-everything lifestyle
  • Views of Lake Michigan and the iconic Chicago skyline 

Streeterville is River North’s smaller, quieter, sleepier sister neighborhood just north of downtown and the Loop. Bounded by the Chicago River on the south, the Magnificent Mile portion of Michigan Avenue on the west, and Lake Michigan on the north and east, Streeterville is the place to be if you want to wake up to water views, gorgeous sunrises, and lakeside breezes every day. Expect to find some of the city’s most sought-after luxury high-rise buildings and riverfront townhomes here, along with easy access to shopping on the Magnificent Mile, restaurants, bars, beaches, parks, and entertainment. Like River North, Streeterville is also home to some of downtown Chicago’s most iconic landmarks, including Navy Pier and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Home Types

Streeterville is luxury high-rise central, although there are elegant graystones, brownstones, and boutique buildings sprinkled throughout the district. Most buildings offer luxury amenities that go beyond the obligatory pool and gym and could include a 24-hour doorman, parking attendants, and an array of concierge services that can encompass everything from pet spas to medical concierge services. Whether you want to live near the lake or closer to Michigan Avenue, there is a variety of residential in a range of budgets, from studios and lofts to sleek two-bedroom condos and spacious four-bedroom penthouses and waterfront townhomes.

Affordability Factor 


Home prices in Streeterville are comparable to those in the Loop and Gold Coast, with view properties commanding the highest prices
. And while the neighborhood may be associated with luxury high-rise buildings, the availability of housing units has kept prices from rising to out-of-reach levels. Affordable homes can still be found – if you know where to look and you’re willing to trade square footage for a vaunted address in one of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods.

Going Out


As a popular feeder neighborhood for professionals who work in the Loop, Streeterville offers the perfect day-to-night lifestyle. Dining options are plentiful here – from The Capital Grille to Volare and many cafes, fast-food restaurants, and casual grab-and-go spots. Plus, you have easy access to the city’s hottest hotels and restaurants on the Magnificent Mile or in nearby neighborhoods, River North and Gold Coast. As evening turns to night, there are plenty of places to go and events to see at the Museum of Contemporary Art or one of the nearby hotels. Head to the Theater District to find opera, live theater, concerts, and off-Broadway or pre-Broadway shows. Enjoy a cocktail at The Signature Room on the 95th floor of the John Hancock Center. Or slink into Winter’s Jazz Club for a live jazz show.

Sunday Funday 


You’ll always find something new to do on a Sunday in Streeterville. Grab a coffee at your favorite neighborhood café like Beatrix, or meet friends for brunch at Yolk. The best shopping in the city awaits just a few blocks away on the Magnificent Mile. During spring and summer, you’ll want to take full advantage of living so close to the lakefront and beach. For family-friendly fun, there’s also the historic Navy Pier, the 200-foot Centennial Wheel, gift shops and eateries, docks lined with sightseeing and cruise boats sweeping lakefront views, a summer fireworks display, the Chicago Children’s Museum, outdoor movie screenings, and live music, plus the Chicago Shakespeare Theater and tons of other world-renowned cultural attractions. Or another option: take the Riverwalk Streeterville Trail to experience its unique blend of nature, public art, boating and fishing, and a mix of museums, bustling outdoor bars, and restaurants.

Your Commute 


Getting around the city is easy as a Streeterville resident. A quick walk puts you in the center of the Loop or the other side of Michigan Avenue. You could also ride your bike along the Lake Shore Trail to reach the Loop or Lincoln Park in just minutes. If you need to go to other parts of the city, you can grab a bus at the Navy Pier Terminal. The Grand Avenue bus will take you west towards any 'L' stop (the closest being the State/Grand Red Line stop) while buses also run express north/south along Lake Shore Drive. You’ll want to have rideshares pick you up along the east/west side streets vs. the highly trafficked Michigan Avenue.

Landmarks 


Several famous Chicago landmarks are based in Streeterville, including Navy Pier, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and more. Architecture enthusiasts may also appreciate having the ornate Tribune Tower and the Water Tower Place to admire.
