Welcome to North Center

Any way you look at it, North Center is no middle-of-the-road neighborhood.
 
Residents enjoy picturesque views of the Chicago River, large parks, a vibrant shopping district, and an abundance of things to do.
 
Anchored by the North Center Town Square, the community offers events including a farmers market and annual festivals headlined by Ribfest, which is celebrating over two decades of tasty ribs and live entertainment. Three city parks, a bowling alley, and an indoor ice arena provide recreational and sports activities, while the neighborhood’s shopping area includes retail boutiques and art galleries. Chicagoans also frequent the Half Acre Beer Company and local performance venues such as Martyrs’.
 
North Center offers a variety of housing options ranging from riverfront properties to Victorians with wrap-around porches. Newly-constructed residences coexist with historic buildings, while aging apartment buildings are being converted to updated condos.
 
The neighborhood is located a mile from the lakefront and seven miles from The Loop, which is within easy reach for commuters thanks to numerous bus routes and two CTA Brown Line stops.
