West Town is a large neighborhood northwest of the Chicago Loop which was named for Chicago’s original western boundary of Western Avenue back in the early 1900s. The West Town community is comprised of several district neighborhoods which include Pulaski Park, Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, East Village, River West, Noble Square, and Humbolt Park. The convenience of being located near downtown Chicago as well as the major highways of I-90 and I-290 has made West Town a haven for redevelopment over the past decade. Additionally, the blend of each of the several neighborhoods making up West Town provides fantastic entertainment and dining options attracting a diverse group of residents in the neighborhood.

Most of the new construction residential real estate in West Town are the gut-rehabbed 2- and 3-flats and itâ€™s not uncommon to find modern updates to many of the single family homes fresh on the Chicago real estate market. For an updated 1 bedroom condos in West Town pricing will typically be somewhere in the low to middle $100,000s depending on the area and a single family home can be purchased for under $400,000.
