Anchored by the intersection of Lawrence, Western and Lincoln Avenues on Chicago’s North Side, Lincoln Square is a cosmopolitan, close-knit neighborhood. It provides a dynamic, diverse blend of tree-lined residential streets and bustling retail and commercial spaces, easily accessible by the CTA Brown Line and Metra. The early 1800s saw largely commercial agriculture in the Lincoln Square area, but beginning in the 1850s, residential subdivisions began springing up amongst the fields of flowers and celery. When the Ravenswood Elevated opened in 1907, it cemented the area as a location both livable and convenient, and it was annexed by the City of Chicago in the 1920s. In the 1940s, the Chamber of Commerce began a campaign to establish Lincoln Square’s commercial identity, culminating in 1978 with the development of the Lincoln Square mall. This charming, Old World-influenced pedestrian plaza now forms the commercial and social heart of Lincoln Square, and solidified Lincoln Square as one of the North Side’s keystone neighborhoods.
Lincoln Square is particularly attractive in terms of family-friendly housing, offering a high percentage of single-family homes and smaller multi-unit buildings, both condominiums and rentals.
