Streeterville, located on Chicago’s near north side, occupies a small swath of land nestled between the Magnificent Mile and Lake Michigan. Despite being less than half a square mile, this area houses some of Chicago’s most prestigious and influential organizations, including Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Kellogg School of Management, and the historic Drake Hotel. The neighborhood began in the late 1800s as a sandbar at the mouth of the Chicago River; today it is a soaring collection of iconic lakefront skyscrapers, including the John Hancock building, Water Tower Place, and Lake Point Towers. In the early 2000s industrial/commercial real estate was converted into luxury residential—perfect for people who love downtown’s hustle and bustle. The area also has a thriving tourism scene, which is enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Whether you’re shopping on the Mag Mile, taking a boat tour from Navy Pier, or wandering through the Museum of Contemporary Art, Streeterville has a little something for everyone.
