Chicago’s Uptown Neighborhood is bound by Irving Park Road, Foster Ave, Lake Michigan and Ashland. The Uptown neighborhood includes Buena Park, a small neighborhood between Irving Park and Montrose and East of Kenmore. Uptown Chicago real estate includes older single family homes, high-rise towers along the Lake, and newer construction condo developments.
Just North of Lakeview, Uptown Chicago offers an ethnically diverse neighborhood with a small Theater District and active restaurant & nightlife scene. The Green Mill jazz club is a popular venue for live music, as well as the Aragon Ballroom, Riviera Theatre and Uptown Theater. The Green Mill is well-known for being a former hangout for Chicago mobster Al Capone. Nowadays the Green Mill is a vibrant Jazz club that offers live music, poetry slam, cocktail lounge and fine dining. Some of the city’s best Southeast Asian cusine can be found on Argyle Street in Uptown. Uptown is also home to many historic landmarked real estate sites and sprawling Lakefront parks.
Uptown Chicago offers residents the same quality apartments that can be found further South for a discounted price. Although Uptown Chicago is a mid-north neighborhood, there are several efficient modes of public transportation to get downtown. The CTA Red Line “EL” train runs through the Uptown neighborhood with several stops in-between. The Red Line takes passengers south to the Loop and north to Rogers Park. The Red Line runs 24 hours a day and takes approximately 24 minutes to get from the heart of Uptown to the downtown Loop area.
Some notable Uptown apartment buildings include Pensacola Place, located at 4334 N Hazel. This mid-rise tower offers studio apartments, one bedroom apartments & two bedroom apartments. The building features a doorman, on-site Jewel grocery store, outdoor swimming pool, laundry room, basketball court, tennis court and rooftop deck. Another Uptown apartment building is “The Covington” located at 4600 N Clarendon. This Uptown apartment building offers a Lake front location, renovated interiors, fair pricing and relatively cheap parking.
