In the past two decades alone, dozens of new buildings, high-rises, hotels, stores and institutions have sprung up in Streeterville, bringing with them a flock of residents to the high-energy community.
A wide range of housing is available, the majority in high-rise buildings. The neighborhood’s stunning array of architecture includes pre-war buildings, a collection of Mies van der Rohe buildings, and landmarks including the-building-formerly-known-as the John Hancock Center.
New construction and smaller mid-rise buildings, a few walk-ups and the occasional townhome or single-family home can be found throughout the neighborhood as well.
Streeterville is home to such notable attractions as The Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place and the Museum of Contemporary Art. It is also home to Northwestern Memorial Hospital's state-of-the-art medical campus and the downtown campuses of Northwestern University and the University of Chicago.
While the neighborhood offers a number of smaller "pocket" parks and playgrounds, the lakefront is the center of attention and it’s never more than a couple of blocks away. Dining out is easy; deciding where to dine with so many great restaurant options is not.
Residents are just steps from the CTA’s Red Line and numerous buses that run up and down Michigan Avenue.
“ From beginning to the end of the process, Leslie was truly fantastic. She took my wife and me around Chicago showing us the various areas. She asked what we wanted and eventually showed us exactly what we needed. She was incredibly knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of real estate. In addition she is a very personable individual and an absolute pleasure to be with. Her knowledge of the legal, decorative, and geographical aspects of purchasing a home is truly amazing. This is the fifth house I have purchased and by far the best real estate agent I’ve ever had. I cannot say that anything needs to be improved in dealing with @properties and Leslie. My recommendation is without qualification! — Stephen M.
