South of Uptown and bordered on the east by Lake Michigan is the vital, well-established community of Lakeview. Known as much for its active community spirit as for being the home of Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs, Lakeview real estate offers an entrancing mix of housing alternatives including classic Chicago-style single-family residences and many large greystones. Along the lakefront are numerous high-rise condominiums. West of the lake are neighborhoods of quiet, tree-lined streets that feature rehabbed vintage apartments and condos, as well as two- and three-flat buildings, converted storefronts and spacious lofts. Lakeview’s stunning shoreline offers residents a wealth of beach-oriented activities including boating, swimming, fishing, running and a thriving beach volleyball scene. The community is also culturally adventurous, with sports bars standing shoulder-to-shoulder with exceptional restaurants, galleries, theaters, clubs and some of the Chicago’s most eclectic shopping areas. Lakeview is also the site of the totem pole of Kwansusila, and a key locale of the Chicago Marathon and Bike-the-Drive.
