Around the Neighborhood
The Avondale Chicago community is diverse, like its neighbor to the south, Logan Square. Rental duplexes, single-family homes, and brownstones line the side streets of this northside neighborhood. Avondale apartments keep it classic and straightforward.
Apartments for rent in Avondale Chicago don't carry the same cachet as neighboring communities, but make no mistake: Avondale has a story to tell and is integral to Chicago's identity. The bricks that rebuilt Chicago after the Great Fire of 1871 were fired in kilns of this northside neighborhood, dug out of clay from the banks of the Chicago River (hint: there's a good bit of trivia for your next night out at a neighborhood pub along Milwaukee Ave).
This neighborhood has a relatively small geographic footprint and is filled with affordably priced vintage apartments with tranquil tree-lined streets. As a result, Avondale has become extremely popular as a rental neighborhood in Chicago, with apartments for rent in two- and three-flat buildings, brownstones, bungalows, coach houses, condos, single-family homes, and classic Chicago courtyard apartment buildings. The availability of Avondale apartments throughout the year tends to be studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom apartments, with only a handful of 4 bedroom apartments. Despite the demand for these apartments, they remain an affordable option.
There are many lovely parks throughout this Chicago neighborhood: Elston Park, Sacramento Playlot Park, Brands Park, Avondale Neighborhood Park, and Parkview Park, and the massive Clark Park is just east across the Chicago River along with Kerry Wood Cub Field next to Lane Tech.
Avondale Chicago sits between Addison and Belmont just west of the Chicago River and Roscoe Village, and the western boundary is Pulaski. Located between the Logan Square and Irving Park neighborhoods, Avondale offers affordable apartments for rent in beautifully restored apartment buildings, convenient access to the CTA Blue Line stations at Belmont and Addison, and easy access to the I-90/94 Kennedy Expressway.
