Home along the vibrant & Magnificent Mile
Studded with the most iconic architecture, Streeterville is in a class of its own. Generally agreed to lie between Lake Michigan and Michigan Ave, Streeterville is one of the most vibrant and successful commercial, residential, cultural, and tourist destinations in the world.
It is home to the John Hancock Center, the Water Tower, the Woman’s Athletic Club, many foreign consulates, and more than 25 hotels including, the five-star Ritz Carlton and the famous Drake Hotel. The neighborhood reflects more than a hundred years of architectural history. So much of this history is now residential, as more and more buildings get converted into apartments and condos. This trend has accelerated in recent years as demand for office space decreased. One example of that is the Tribune Tower. A true masterpiece gracing the city skyline, it is now home to 162 residential units.
The neighborhood is popular with healthcare workers and medical researchers. Northwestern Memorial Hospital is located right in the heart of it. Ranked number one in the state and top ten nationally, the hospital is the flagship campus for Northwestern Medicine and the primary teaching hospital for the Feinberg School of Medicine.
When it comes to enjoying the Holidays there is no better destination in Chicago than the Magnificent Mile! Now through mid-January, residents, and tourists can see the festive decorations in the streets, the shop windows, and the many hotels along the Mag Mile. Cozy up at the hot chocolate station in the newly remodeled lobby of the Four Seasons or step into “the magical wonderland” of The Peninsula hotel. And while you are there, put your skating skills to the test at the one-and-only rooftop ice rink in the city.
Had enough of shopping? Head over to the Museum of Contemporary Art or play a round of indoor bocce ball at Pinstripes. The dock and Riverwalk patio of the historic River East Arts Center is one of the best-kept secrets in the city! The mixed-use building features luxury loft residential rentals and retail/restaurant spaces on the Illinois Street level. Downstairs, Robert’s Pizza is a local’s favorite place for brick oven-baked thin crust pizza. Winter’s Jazz Club is a classic jazz venue with an intimate atmosphere and great drinks.
Whether you are looking for world-class shopping, dining, architecture, art, or educational and medical facilities, Streeterville is at the heart of it all. It is an unparalleled place to work, live and experience Chicago.
