Chicago is comprised of 77 distinct communities which are contained within four major areas: Central, North Side, West Side and South Side.

Many major commercial, cultural and financial institutions are concentrated here. It is home to high-rise condos, coops, and townhouses, many offering views of the city’s impressive architecture and infrastructure. The Millennium Park, Grant Park and many other green spaces afford residents and visitors excellent opportunities for recreational and relaxation.

South Side

The South Side is in some ways the most significant part of Chicago as it covers about 60% of the city's total land area. It was the home of former US president Barack Obama, and it has also had other notable residents such as Muhammad Ali. The area contains two of Chicago's most significant green spaces: Jackson Park and Washington Park.

One of the largest medical districts in the US, the Illinois Medical District is located in this part of the city, providing many valuable services and research facilities.

Real Estate Market

Central Chicago, being the city's commercial hub, has properties that naturally cost more per square foot than in most other parts of town.

The South Side has a higher percentage of single-family homes than other areas. There are bungalows, mid-rise condos, modest townhomes and multi-family dwellings here. This area tends to contain the most affordable homes in Chicago, offering homebuyers the least expensive per-square-foot deals.

North Side, being the most densely populated, contains a lot of townhomes with charming interiors and lovely landscaped yards. The area’s traditional brick bungalows and cottages are often in good shape despite being built years back—they are more likely to be found in the Northwestern part. There are condos here as well.

The West Side boasts newly constructed high-rise condos and apartment blocks, plus high-rise and mid-rise office blocks. Being the home of the University of Illinois, there are plenty of apartments here for students.

Economic Overview & Outlook

Chicago has one of the most balanced economies in the U.S. on account of its high level of diversification.

Of the twelve Fortune 500 companies which have their headquarters in the city, perhaps the most famous are the aerospace giant Boeing and the food companies McDonald's and Kraft Heinz.

The city's minimum wage is one of the highest in the country, and this may be one of the reasons why the declines in population seen in recent decades appear to have halted.
