Wicker Park Real Estate
Because Wicker Park was originally developed as a residential neighborhood in the immediate aftermath of the Chicago Fire, the signature real estate offerings dotting West Town thoroughfares such as Evergreen Avenue or Hoyne Street, tend to be solidly, brick or stone built, vintage single family homes, bungalows, cottages and two-flat or three-flat condominium conversions. If you’re in the market for something more recent you will also be in luck. Wicker Park represents some of Chicago’s most sought after residential real estate. So new construction condos and townhouses spring up regularly to meet home buyer demand.
