Welcome to LP!

Lincoln Park, is one of Chicago's most sought after neighborhoods. If proximity to the lakefront and downtown are a priority - this location can’t be beat. With a healthy mix of nightlife, shopping & dining, many would dub this the “location, location, location.” Many consider this the quintessential Chicago neighborhood with its classic red brick single family homes, townhome communities, row homes, and Victorian style architecture. A significant number of 100+ year old multi-units have been converted into stunning single family homes nestled alongside newer construction offering a variety of styles that blend well together along tree- lined streets. You’ll also find 3-5 story boutique condo buildings and mid-rise condo buildings tucked along the tree-lined streets. Lincoln Park continues to have a proven resale value over the years, due to the established reputation, DePaul, and steady demand over time.

Smaller town homes and vintage condominiums still offer buyers an affordable entrée into Lincoln Park, but prices rapidly escalate for rehabs and new construction. The average single-family home in Lincoln Park costs over $1 million, and several new mansions are commanding multi-million- dollar prices. Lincoln Park also has a number of town homes, many within gated communities. Around DePaul University, buyers can also find loft condominiums in converted factories and warehouses. On its eastern edge, Lincoln Park features beautiful high-rise buildings with breathtaking views of the lake, zoo, park and city skyline.

Lincoln Park High School ranks among the city’s 10 best public high schools, according to a 2012 Chicago analysis, and Lincoln Elementary among the city’s 15 best public grade schools. The community's amenities, location and housing options attract everyone from young, first-time homebuyers to local celebrities and CEOs. It’s also one of the most walkable hoods in the city—car is not necessary for daily errands/commute. With its mix of city parks, restaurants, bars, theaters and top schools, Lincoln Park is virtually unrivaled among urban neighborhoods in the U.S.
