Bordered by Michigan Avenue, the Chicago River, Lake Michigan, and Millennium Park, New East Side is a residential haven in the middle of a humming metropolis. Chicago’s newest neighborhood boasts modern high-rises with state-of-the-art amenities, comprehensive lake and city views, and green space galore.
Living in New East Side means easily scoring the best picnic spots for free performances in Millennium Park, short lakefront hikes to a game at Soldier Field, direct access to The Art Institute of Chicago via the park and bridgeway, dining in style on a rooftop in the Loop or riverwalk patio—and retreating to one of the most well-designed, up-to-date residential buildings in the city for downtime. With the nearest “L” stop a half-mile away and minimal nightlife destinations, New Eastside is generally more tranquil than other downtown areas. However, dining, shopping, and other amenities can be found within the perimeter, and Michigan Avenue and the Loop are mere steps away.
