Logan Square


Centered on its namesake public square, Logan Square contains the three-way intersection of Milwaukee Avenue, Logan Boulevard and Kedzie Boulevard. Bounded by the Metra/Milwaukee District North Line railroad on the west, the North Branch of the Chicago River on the east, Diversey Avenue on the north, and Armitage on the south, the area is known for its historic boulevards and roomy bungalow-style houses. Initially home to mostly working class residents, this diverse and still affordable neighborhood has since been settled by artists, students and families. In the vicinity of Wicker Park and Bucktown, hang-outs for young in-the-know Chicagoans, Logan Square benefits from small restaurants like Lula Cafe, and hipster hangouts such as Logan Theatre, where you can see new releases for just four dollars. The area offers busy business corridors, and charming tree-lined streets, as well as architectural attractions like the Illinois Centennial Monument, built in 1918 by Henry Bacon, famed architect of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.


As striking as the memorial, Logan Square homes are often works of art, many with beautiful hardwood floors and exposed brick.  Ornate mansions, nearly anachronistic in their grandeur, line Logan and Kedzie Boulevards. Town homes and condominiums are also readily available, as are three-flats and single-family homes. Rehabbed cottages and airy lofts round out the options, the recent flood of homebuyers having generated an explosion of residential growth.
