West Town properties and businesses include cultural landmarks such as opulent old churches established by earlier West Town residents along with hot and hip restaurants, boutiques, nightclubs, bars, and galleries. From railroad workers and some of Chicago’s wealthiest beer brewers to a more recent wave of bohemian trend-setters, West Town’s resident make-up has been a composite one starting with its origins.

Attracted by easy access to the Loop via the Blue Line, more affordable real estate than in Lincoln Park, and large West Town loft spaces in abandoned factories, artists initially arrived in the community in the 1980s. The injection of artists, writers and musicians into the area encouraged a flourishing commercial sector and annual events like Around the Coyote, a festival that celebrates local artists while seeking to bring them international recognition. Today, upscale lounges mix with mom-and-pop joints, designer boutiques with resale shops and live music venues with DJ-attended clubs.

West Town real estate consists of stately homes from the 19th century standing aside newly constructed single family houses and condominiums. Hoyne and Pierce Streets are the best examples of yesteryear grandiosity since they are home to many of the mansions built by the beer barons of the late 1800s, a fact that has dubbed Hoyne Street “Beer Baron Row.” Vintage architecture blends with the fully outfitted contemporary, catering to a variety of homebuyers’ tastes and a range of budgets, making West Town a veritable gold mine of real estate opportunities.

A Little Bit About West Town's History

In the second half of the twentieth century, West Town became primarily a Latino “port of entry” neighborhood. Those of Puerto Rican Descent seemed to move westward toward Humboldt Park, and then Mexicans concentrated in areas east of the Ukrainian Village. By 1990, Mexicans formed the dominant Latino group, and their presence is reflected in the shopping district along Chicago Avenue. African American individuals settled in the area beginning in the 1930s but became particularly numerous in the 1970s with the construction of the Noble Square Cooperative project as well as other subsidized housing within the vicinity. During the later portion of the twentieth century, African-American artists and other affluent people of this heritage moved in as part of the overall evolution of Wicker Park which was viewed as a “hip alternative” area catering to musicians and artists.
