Welcome to Logan Square
Located about five miles northwest of Downtown Chicago, Logan Square is an increasingly popular neighborhood for those who want a quieter day-to-day experience with the same unique culture and character that Chicagoans love. Though far enough from Downtown that the fast-paced nature of the city melts away, Logan Square has great highway access that makes it incredibly easy for commuters to get to work in a snap. It’s also home to a rich cultural scene of artists, musicians, and small-business owners who imbue the community with a rich identity. Homes here include a mix of beautiful traditional styles and newly developed condos and apartments with all the luxury amenities you could need.
If you’re on the lookout for homes in Logan Square, don’t forget to take a walk through the charming streets of neighborhood-within-the-neighborhood Palmer Square.
