Living In Chicago’s Industrial Corridor
Big things are happening in Chicago’s Industrial Corridor.
Chicago’s industrial Corridor is comprised of 760 acres and sits along Elston Avenue in the near northwest side. The Industrial Corridor meanders through five Chicago zip codes – 60610, 60614, 60618, 60622 and 60647. For years it was home to Morton Salt and other large and small manufacturing and service enterprises.
In May of 2017, the city issues 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.
Meanwhile, there are however some interesting condos in neighborhoods along the edges including Logan Square to the northwest, Lincoln Park to the east and Bucktown and Wicker Park to the west. Any condos you see on our page are likely just over the edge in one of these neighborhoods but yet offer some of the vibe of the Industrial Corridor. The area also has a surprising number of shops, restaurants, bars and music venues that attract people from all over the city.
