Known for its artistic spirit, trendy restaurants, active nightlife, and chic little galleries and boutiques, the River North has been one of Chicago's most popular neighborhoods for young professionals for quite a while now, particularly given its proximity to the Loop and the downtown business districts, along with the city's main freeways and public transit options. So naturally, there are plenty of interesting properties located in the area - there is something to suit nearly everyone's taste.
The real estate options vary from glittering contemporary high-rises to reclaimed industrial lofts, with some classic town homes sprinkled in between. The easy commute to the Loop and the rest of the city's neighborhoods makes this area the perfect choice for an investment property, a second home in the city, or a gorgeous place to live in a central location that has all the conveniences and amenities you could ever desire, the River North is a great choice for a Chicago real estate purchase.
