As of June, 2018, the demand for high-end single family homes in Lincoln Park is still strong; in particular, in East Lincoln Park along the 1800 – 1900 blocks of North Burling, Howe, and Orchard Streets, just east of Halsted. Seventeen homes have sold for $5 million or more since 2008, and two homes sold in 2018 for $5,625,000 and $6,788,625.  But these are not record Lincoln Park home prices.

Kitchen Design Trends in Luxury Homes    

While many Chicago luxury home buyers tell me that the only thing they make for dinner is reservations, a kitchen can make or break a deal. It not only has to resonate with the buyer’s aesthetic, it has to be open, welcoming and functional with the latest bells and whistles and, ideally, a built-in coffee station.  It’s where they see themselves at the end of a long day, sorting mail while pouring a glass of wine, supervising homework, or catching-up with family and friends before going out to dinner. The kitchen island is command central in 2018 kitchen trends in luxury condominiums and homes.

Streeterville defies the expression that you can’t be everything to everyone with diverse real estate ranging from sky-high luxury condos in the 96-story John Hancock to classic pre-war co-ops with tree-top views: an historic pocket-neighborhood just off the lakefront and minutes to the world-famous shopping mecca, the Miracle Mile. The walk-to-everything location makes Streeterville an ideal choice for an in-town condo to enjoy on weekends or for full-time residents who want a quick commute to work.

If you’re torn between wanting to live by the water but don’t want to be on Lake Shore Drive, you’ll enjoy discovering Chicago’s River North neighborhood, just south of Chicago Avenue and north of the Loop, east of the Magnificent Mile, and bounded on the south and west by the Chicago River, dubbed Chicago’s second shoreline by Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Once a thriving industrial area, the economic downturn of the 1970s forever transformed River North into a creative colony, offering emerging artists and writers affordable lofts and studios in shuttered warehouses. Fortunately, with growth and prosperity, a sense of the neighborhood’s bohemian culture remained. Today, the officially designated RIVER NORTH GALLERY
