Come for the small town vibe, stay for the big city living.
Named for one of the more colorful characters in Chicago history, Captain George Wellington Streeter founded this part of the city when it was still mostly sandbar in Lake Michigan. Bounded on the west by the Magnificent Mile, Streeterville is made up of universities, medical facilities, high rise apartments, and newly redeveloped land, all with a unique cultural flavor that only a close-knit community can create. Those who live in Streeterville know how to battle the crowds, as one of Chicago’s most popular attractions, Navy Pier, is right next door.
