Looking For an Eclectic, Fun Neighborhood? Chicago’s Logan Square a Good Fit

One of the things I like most about Chicago is its many neighborhoods, all with their own character. There are neighborhoods that are perfect for families and others that appeal to younger homeowners and empty nesters.


Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood has its own flavor, and today ranks as one of the city’s hottest places to live. As this story in the Chicago Tribune says, there is a development boom taking place in Logan Square today, bringing with it new restaurants, shops, luxury apartment buildings and breweries.


All this makes Logan Square an attractive place for home buyers. Developers recognize this, and are bringing new residential product to the neighborhood.


One of these new residential buildings is the 78-unit Mode Logan Square Apartments. This modern apartment development, at the intersection of Campbell and Armitage avenues, opened to its first tenants in January of this year. As the Tribune story says, demand for these new apartment units is high. And developers expect demand for all residential in Logan Square to remain high.


There are plenty of ownership opportunities in Logan Square, too, of course, If you’re ready to own in this busy neighborhood, you can find condo space available for sale.


As with all of Chicago’s popular neighborhoods, though, the amount of homes for sale in Logan Square is low compared to historic norms. Homes priced right here sell quickly, which means that buyers have to be ready to act just as quickly when they find a Logan Square condominium that they like.
