Welcome to West Town/Ukrainian Village!

Located on the west side of Chicago, Ukrainian Village is a residential area that reflects the German, Polish and Ukrainian immigrants who settled in the area in the 1800s and early 1900s. Offering solid, Victorian-style homes, workers cottages and tidy redbrick two- and three-flats, Ukrainian Village is quickly becoming a popular destination for those seeking an alternative to Bucktown and Wicker Park. 

The community is served by the Chicago Public School system, with students attending Christopher Columbus Elementary school, and either Roberto Clemente or Wells Academy for high school. There are a number of private schools in the surrounding area, including: the LaSalle Language Academy, A.N. Pritzker Elementary, and WalterPayton College Prep. Both the Loop and O'Hare Airport are a quick commute from Ukrainian Village on the CTA's Blue Line.

Rehabs and tear-downs abound in Ukrainian Village as young professionals continue to seek out an affordable alternative to Bucktown/ Wicker Park to the north…but closed sale prices are on the rise and prices in UK Village are not expected to be at a discount compared to Bucktown/Wicker for much longer.

In addition to a new generation of residents, the neighborhood has also seen a number of trendy eateries, bars and boutiques pop up along Division Street, Chicago Avenue and Damen Avenue. With trendy Wicker Park nearby, residents also have immediate access to dozens of restaurants, eclectic shops and art galleries.
