Streeterville, is one of Chicago’s oldest neighborhoods but has some of its newest construction. It is located just north of the Loop and south of the Chicago’s famed Gold Coast. Over the past 10 years, dozens of new properties have been built in Streeterville; sleek and luxurious, residential high-rise condominium properties, world class hotels, local to international boutiques and cultural and medical institutional structures, all surrounding the spot where Captain George Wellington Streeter famously ran aground, laying claim to the area in 1886.
High-rise buildings make up the majority of homes in Streeterville, though every now and then you will find a low to mid-rise structure and even the random single family home. Architectural styles run from pre-war to newly built to reflect a pre-war sensibility, historical properties such as a collection of beauties by Mies van der Rohe, Benjamin Marshall and Howard Van Doren Shaw, easily identifiable landmarks like the John Hancock Center and Water Tower Place, and several ultra contemporary new construction buildings.
The Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place and the Museum of Contemporary Art anchor Streeterville. It is also home to Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s new, state-of-the-art medical campus and the downtown campuses of Northwestern University and the University of Chicago. Robert A.M. Stern, an AD100 Hall of Famer, is about complete with his addition to the Chicago skyline with One Bennett Park, his first major Chicago project. This stunning, and soon to be the Windy City’s tallest, residential building is a 70-story tower set near The Chicago River and Lake Michigan, in the heart of Streeterville. The stunning Chicago lakefront is never more than a couple of blocks away and sail boats dot the lake spring through fall. Navy Pier is another world class tourist attraction that calls Streeterville home. Dining options include a truly eclectic mix of restaurants; from cozy neighborhood spots to 4-star world class fine dining; all serving neighborhood residents, the office crowd, and the business travelers and tourists who stroll down Michigan Avenue.
