Pilsen Real Estate
Situated on Chicago's lower west side between the Dan Ryan Expressway, Interstate 55, West 16th Street and South Ashland Avenue, roughly three miles south west of the Downtown Loop, Forbes Magazine has actually described Pilsen as one of the “coolest neighborhoods” anywhere in world. It’s also simultaneously one of the Windy City’s oldest and fastest gentrifying communities. So its residential real estate offerings includes everything from Vintage Single Family Homes, Town Houses and Rehab Lofts to New Construction Loft Homes, Classic Two-Flat Condos, Duplexes and Mid-Rise Condominium Complexes. It’s rare to be able to say so, but Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood just might have something to suit virtually every urban home buyer’s tastes.
Pilsen Neighborhood Information
Pilsen has welcomed successive waves of immigrant communities for over 150 years and that process has left the neighborhood with an enviable dynamism, an easy-going vibe and a strong arts culture residents can see every day in the colorful murals that have blossomed on the sides of buildings and homes. Of course, the same creativity can be found in Pilsen's many art galleries, exhibition spaces and artist studios, as well as in the widely revered National Museum of Mexican Art. On the second Friday of each month, Pilsen's Gallery Night allows visitors to tour over 30 galleries, lofts, and retail spaces. Local attractions like Harrison Park, Thalia Hall, Honky Tonk Bar-be-cue and the Chicago Urban Arts Society are all frequented by residents.
Pilsen is bordered by the Stevenson expressway and is serviced by a number of CTA Bus Line and Several Pink Line L Train stops ready to ferry commuters to and from the Downtown Loop.
