Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park Real Estate

A picturesque neighborhood that beckons the affluent with its green spaces, restaurants, and varied architecture


Lincoln Park is a highly desirable community on the North Side of Chicago. From the namesake park to its variety of residential architecture, there are many reasons why people adore Lincoln Park and the homes for sale here. You can feel the area’s rich history as you walk its streets and see its many landmarks. Home to five architecturally significant churches, these monumental sanctuaries breathe a distinct charm into the community. 


During the 19th century, the area was home to wealthy residents, German farmers, shopkeepers, and industrial workers. As time progressed, the Great Fire destroyed the majority of structures there. As residents quickly rebuilt their surroundings and livelihoods, the community’s commerce grew immensely, as did its population of European transplants. Yet again, locals were hit with the Great Depression, and Lincoln Park’s housing stock deteriorated. 


In the last 25 years, Lincoln Park’s land values increased dramatically; new high-rises were built, old homes were rehabilitated, and single professionals and empty-nesters moved in. The combination of public and private community renewal efforts made this community the high-status neighborhood it is today.

The Greenhouse Theater Center is another beloved multi-stage entertainment center that shows everything from comedies to musical theater performances.
