Logan Square proves that it is hip to be square after all. The Northwest Side neighborhood, named one of the coolest in the country, attracts residents with its artistic bohemian vibe, park-like boulevards and affordable housing options.
The Logan Square Boulevards District, lined with beautiful homes and mature trees, is a designated Chicago landmark.
Although it’s surrounded by some of Chicago’s trendiest areas for nightlife, the neighborhood definitely holds its own. Logan Square is home to locally owned restaurants, bars and bistros including hotspots noted by Bon Appétit in naming Chicago its “Restaurant City of the Year”.
Artists and musicians live and work in the neighborhood, performing and displaying their art at local coffee shops, cafes and theaters.
Known for its historic greystones, large bungalows and stately mansions, Logan Square is undergoing a boom of residential development, including condominiums, lofts, town-homes, three-flats and single-family homes at a variety of price points.
The neighborhood’s easy access to the CTA Blue Line is another attraction for residents.
Named for its public square, the community retains the area’s historic charm by repurposing and preserving its landmarks. A former lamp factory now houses a sustainable green business center complete with an urban farm.
The Bloomingdale Trail, a former rail line, is now a nearly three-mile elevated linear park, the longest of its kind in the U.S. dubbed “The 606” jogging and biking trail.
