Get to Know the Area
Streeterville, located east of Michigan Avenue and north of the Chicago River, was actually (for a short time) an independent territory claimed by the area’s colorful founder, “Cap” Streeter. Today Streeterville is home to some of Chicago’s most valuable real estate, including Michigan Avenue and one of Chicago’s most popular tourist attractions, Navy Pier.
Housing in Streeterville includes vintage and newly constructed high-rises and mid-rise condominiums. The neighborhood is also home to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Northwestern University Medical Center and the university’s downtown campus, as well as the Northwestern University Law School and the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business.
