Living In the Industrial Corridor
Big things are happening here. But before we dive into that, let’s get an idea about where the North Branch Industrial Corridor actually is located.
You can view a map of the area by clicking on the blue button above that says “See All Industrial Corridor Real Estate Listings.
Chicago’s industrial Corridor is comprised of 760 acres, sits along Elston Avenue in the near northwest side of Chicago. It’s a sprawling area. In fact, the North Branch Industrial Corridor meanders through five Chicago zip codes – 60610, 60614, 60618, 60622 and 60647 and includes some famous industrial names. For example, for many years it was home to Morton Salt and other large and small manufacturing and service enterprises.
First, in May of 2017, the city issued new proposed zoning and land use changes.
The Chicago tribune reported that “billions of dollars in commercial real estate development, as well as new residential development, sports fields, bridges, a new Metra station and other infrastructure could soon be coming to a 3.7-mile stretch along the Chicago River”.
So big things are happening for this valuable area.
Next, fast forward to 2020 and we can see progress. For instance, the construction of the residential condo development Triangle Square. It’s located at 1701 W Webster Ave and is being built by Belgravia.
Triangle Square will stand 7 stories and include 66 condos ranging in price from just over $500,000 for a two bedroom unit to nearly $900,000 for a three bedroom plus office unit. The Triangle Square development is being billed as being located in “East Bucktown”, actually a fair description of the location as it sits between Bucktown and Lincoln Park. Live here and you’ll be just steps from the excellent variety of shopping, restaurants and nightlife plus the super popular 606 Trail.
And finally, in addition to Triangle Square, there are plenty of other new developments in the works. Moreover, there are of course many interesting condos in neighborhoods along the edges of the North Branch Industrial Corridor. For example, in Logan Square to the northwest, Lincoln Park to the east and Bucktown and Wicker Park to the west.
