North Center

North Center neighborhood is located on the North Side of Chicago, only five miles from the Loop. North Center is a vibrant family-friendly community near the Lakefront with a mix of well-kept residential homes, eclectic restaurants, bars, shopping, entertainment, and businesses. 

Vintage homes like grand Victorians with wrap-around porches on quiet tree-lined streets, are also relatively common in the North Center area--a major draw for buyers looking for a property to restore. North Center neighborhood has great public transportation with three CTA Brown Line stops and buses on every major street; it’s an easy commute to downtown and Lake Michigan.



The North Center neighborhood includes three city parks - including an indoor ice arena, a nearby library, several public and private schools, and North Center Town Square.

The North Center Chamber of Commerce hosts many free family and community events throughout the year. On Saturdays from June to October, North Center Town Square is also home to one of only three City of Chicago-sponsored Farmer’s Markets.
