Chicago’s Central region is generally understood to be the neighborhoods that are clustered around the city’s original highway: the Chicago River. Here you’ll find soaring skyscrapers and iconic entries into the American school of architecture, but you’ll also find unique neighborhoods with their own legends and larger-than-life characters. As Chicago continues to redefine the look and feel of urban living, several of the Central neighborhoods have emerged as the most sought-after places to live within the city.
The Central region is where you can expect to find Chicago’s highest concentration of commercial real estate and the highest number of theaters. Chicago’s main railroad hubs can be found within the Central district, but the lakefront land is 100% dedicated to park space. The buildings rise defiantly into the sky while being built in marshy soil. Contradictory, bold, beautiful and textured -- the Central district has it all going on, and change is the only constant in this part of town.
