Located between one and two miles north of the center of the Loop, the Near North Side, Old Town and Gold Coast are three Chicago neighborhoods that are making a name for themselves in terms of popularity among Chicago condo buyers.

Simply put, these neighborhoods are in the center of, or at least in walking distance to the center of, it all. Shopping, dining, nightlife, entertainment and just about anything else today’s savvy urban resident could hope to have access to are all in close proximity.

Comedy Clubs Near Condos for Sale Near Downtown Chicago

Chicago is known as The Second City, and has been No. 1 in the comedy world since as far back as most people can remember. The Old Town/Near North Side/Gold Coast region is home to some of the city’s most legendary comedy clubs, including Zanies and The Second City main stage. Comedy legends Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert all cut their teeth on these stages and being in close proximity to such comedy royalty is something that many Chicago residents in the area hold very near and dear. Being close to comedy clubs is no joke when it comes to real estate and possible appreciation; it's no secret that people value a neighborhood very much when looking for a condo to buy or sell. Think long-term about the upside potential for your condo!

About as close to the hustle and bustle of downtown without actually living in the heart of the Loop, Old Town, the Near North Side and Gold Coast offer a number of attractive condo buying options.
