What’s Best About Living In Dearborn Park?
Here you’ll find a wide array of housing choices, great schools, family-friendly parks, quiet tree-lined streets and super easy access to all the best Chicago offers.
Dearborn Park was constructed in a phase I and phase II on a large tract of reclaimed rail road land during the 1970s and 80s.
The goal of the development was to provide families with a neighborhood that felt like a suburb within the city. And a respite from Chicago’s nearby bustling downtown. A way to remain in the city rather than move to the suburbs. A bold dream at the time.
Today, divided through the center by Roosevelt Road, Dearborn Park I & II feel separate from each other and the surrounding South Loop. This peaceful easy feeling is amplified by the fact that both parts of Dearborn Park are enclosed with no drive-through traffic from the city.
Here’s a bit more about each part of the development.
Dearborn Park I
Dearborn Park I was the first phase of the development and was build in the late 1970s. It’s located just north of Roosevelt Road. Dearborn Park I features several popular mid- and high-rise condo and apartment buildings including 1115 S. Plymouth Ct and The Terraces at 801 S. Plymouth Ct. Plus townhomes with courtyards. The development includes the popular Theodore Roosevelt Park.
Dearborn Park II
Dearborn Park II is located to the south of Roosevelt Road and was constructed from the 1980’s the the early 1990’s. The development consists entirely of detached Dearborn Park homes and townhouse developments in the post-modern style.
These include, Federal Square, Atrium Homes, Prairie Townhomes, Newgate Square, Burnham Station and Dearborn Tower. Each with an independent home owner’s association.
Residents enjoy easy access to South Loop Elementary School which sits in the north part of the neighborhood. Plus two family friendly parks; Jones Park (by the school) and Cotton Tail Park. Dearborn Park homes for sale present what may well be the best way of life in Chicago.
