EXPLORE CHICAGO’S NEW EAST SIDE NEIGHBORHOOD
The New East Side is Chicago’s newest Lakefront neighborhood. With boundaries extending from MillenniumPark to the south and the Chicago River to the north, this new community has been flush with building activity since the early 1970s and has seen a recent resurgence of development. The Chicago Riverwalk project was completed in 2019 and has brought many new restaurants and bars to the areas along the river.
The New East Side is home to some of the tallest residential and commercial buildings in the country with plans to continue to grow. Residents in the area enjoy stunning views of lake Michigan and the surrounding downtown areas, the beautiful Lake Shore East Park sets the central anchor of the neighborhood. The neighborhood is one-of-a-kind in Chicago and has won awards for the innovative urban planning that went into creating a semi-secluded neighborhood in the middle of downtown Chicago.
