Welcome to East Lakeview

East Lake View is as dedicated to the lifestyle of twenty-somethings and families as it is to die-hard Cubs fans. A lively, pocketed community steps from Lake Michigan, the beach, parks, and golf course. The excellent school district with public and private school options. The foodie restaurants and easy access to public transportation make this an enviable location.

The Lifestyle: A flurry of game day and lakefront activity.

Unexpected Appeal: Phenomenal entertainment at historic venues.

The Market: Affordable vintage walk-ups, pricier single-family homes and condos, and a burgeoning array of high-end, mixed-use developments.

You’ll Fall in Love With: The palpable energy and terrific access to the lake.
