Welcome to Lincoln Park

Stunning lakefront community draped in charming, historic vibes
 
Settled along the North Side of Chicago on the banks of Lake Michigan, Lincoln Park is one of the most affluent and expensive communities to call home, attracting many families and young professionals seeking the convenience of urban living with lots of activities. Its namesake park stretches along the dazzling lakefront, speckled with magnificent statues, museums, the Lincoln Park Zoo, and an outdoor theatre.
 
Following the aftermath of the Great Depression, the Lincoln Park Conservation Association was formed to give the town a facelift by renovating dilapidated old buildings and schools. Some of these include loft condos converted from warehouses and revitalized townhomes resplendent in all their vintage glory. Ancient architectural landmarks embody the neighborhood’s rich historical background, while Lincoln Park is also home to high-end national retailers, prestigious restaurants, and sassy boutiques all within walking distance of homes.
 
In a stunning display of luxury and elegance, homes in Lincoln Park run the gamut from modern condos to brownstones and single-family homes with french-style architecture, victorian era splendor, and Georgian-revival styles, designed by renowned architects including Frank Lloyd Wright and Edwin H. Clark among others.
