Gentrification 2.018: The Jewel of the North side

We all wrestle with CHANGE and the Lakeview neighborhood is experiencing a lot of it !

Real Estate changes when the math of development, a chess match between convenience and price and neighborhood's opportunity for a new season of life cross a tripping point.

 

Lakeview has long been a Bohemian, eclectic, liberal , life's a beach neighborhood where going to a day baseball game was a right and sign of personal integrity to being real .  It is clear however that one of our favorite neighborhoods is becoming a more grown up version of itself.

#1) GAYTRIFICATION

ChicagoCondoConsultants.jpg

Lakeview is a historically significant cultural wellspring of the Homosexual movement in America.  America has grown to see Gay as normal and the need for an exclusive neighborhood to protect and mobilize is diminishing.  Gay people live everywhere in Chicago now.   What do you think about that article?  The magnitude of social and  economic direction the homosexual community has contributed to Chicago has almost no equal.

Below are some very interesting links:

#2 ) The Lovable Losers

 Historically 81 days a year the ivy covered graveyard was open for whoever had whatever to do.  About 7 years ago that 700 million dollar Zen began the transition into a 2 billion dollar of American Sports religion.  The Hotel, the  airbnb biz, the tourism dollars and A Gold rush  for every bar, every restaurant, and every retail business... the  hole-in-wall bar featuring real bleacher bums and neighborhoodsters have become more of a  halloween characters.

THE MAGIC HAS SIMPLY GATHERED IN A PROTECTED CORNER OF THE PROMISE LAND called 

EAST LAKEVIEW

 

 We see this little section of Lakeview as a treasure to be enjoyed.    The density is mind numbing pressed between the lakefront and The six corners of Lincoln Park.  The Neighborhood has a pinch of every attempted Chicago building style and enough historic and zoning restriction that it should just stay as perfect as it is meant to be.  Walk ups, 4 plus ones. courtyard buildings, high rises facing the lake , the smell of the water.  The neighborhood is still affordable and is satisfying and dirty and integrated with the park and the lake .  Living cost are lower than the developing parts of Lakeview and nothing in the whole world is better than Lake Michigan when you need a taste of that old Zen from back when..    Everything about east Lakeview has the best parts of the character and nature that made the area so special.  It may not last forever but as of right now we highly recommend you considering staking out some real estate for the next season of your life in this terrific Chicago hood...and please do not bring your car.
