Logan Square Chicago Neighborhood

Logan Square is part of Chicago’s historic North Side boulevard system. Wide green-grass medians and vintage architecture are signature features of this lovely family-oriented neighborhood. Many of the blocks are residential, lined with a mix of detached houses and Logan Square condos for sale. In the summertime people can join the Historic Mansion House and Garden Walk, which tours some of the community’s most spectacular properties. And every August the Taste of Logan Square festival showcases local restaurant favorites in the neighborhood’s own mini version of the Taste of Chicago.

The Logan Square neighborhood is large—bound by Armitage to the south, Pulaski to the west, Belmont to the north and Western to the east. It is conveniently serviced by the Blue Line L train, which follows Milwaukee Avenue diagonally through the middle before going north to Belmont and Kimball. The Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94) heads through the northeastern corner of the community and there’s also a system of bus routes that provides public transportation within the area and to other parts of town.

The majority of older homes in Logan Square have been converted into flats or multifamily buildings. At the same time, new construction units have come on the market presenting a diverse range of Logan Square condos for sale. The selection of real estate opportunities attracts buyers with all sorts of accommodation needs. The solo dweller can easily find a one-bedroom residence while a family with pets can get the square footage they want, plus a sizeable yard where Fido can run around. In fact, one of the perks of Logan Square living is the widespread availability of properties with outdoor space. Many of the lots have backyards that lead to alley-entrance detached garages. Even Logan Square condos for sale usually afford some sort of private balcony, deck or communal commons.

In addition to your own outside area, the neighborhood has several public parks and squares where residents can enjoy the Great Outdoors (urban-style). From June to October a Farmer’s Market is held every Sunday in Logan Square at the southeast corner of Logan Boulevard and Milwaukee Avenue (next to the tall Illinois Centennial Monument at the square’s western edge). Forget about going to the supermarket for your fruits and veggies, fresh-grown goods are carted in for the weekly event including gorgeous bouquets of flowers and potted plants to start your own garden at home.

There are a lot of restaurants in Logan Square. In the center of the neighborhood (at the intersection of Milwaukee, Logan Boulevard and Kedzie Avenue) are several local hotspots. Dunlay’s On the Square has a popular sidewalk café that overlooks the action at the community’s namesake Square. Azucar Bar & Grill is a small Spanish-style tapas joint with a well-stocked bar for an evening out on the town. Both El Cid and El Cid 2 are within walking distance of the Square, churning out delicious Mexican food favorites in big portions for inexpensive prices. Lula Café is another famous haunt in Logan Square. It attracts a bevy of brunchers on weekends, but the organic fare makes for mouthwatering meals anytime of day, any day of the week.
