Get to Know Edgewater

Edgewater is a sprawling area with almost suburban amenities, such as wider streets, spacious yards and friendly neighbors. It is bounded by Lake Michigan, Foster, Ravenswood and Devon. The name Edgewater originated with developer J.L.Cochran, who wanted to create a small town in 1880. By 1910, the name Edgewater was being used through the area. Today, Edgewater is composed of many lovely neighborhoods, including Andersonville.

What to do in Edgewater

Residents are likely to participate just as ardently in block parties and garden walks as they are in local politics. It even has its own historical society.

True to its name, Edgewater is found on Lake Michigan's shoreline, giving its residents many opportunities for volleyball, biking, fishing and more. Plus, it's very close to Wrigley Field.

Edgewater residents have a quick a 10-minute drive via Lake Shore Drive to downtown Chicago. It also boasts excellent access to trains and public transportation. Loyola University is nearby. It is home to many distinct businesses and restaurants, diverse mix of households and income levels, and a strong network of community-based organizations.

Edgewater's Distinctive Housing

Initially built up during the 1920s, the area underwent several rounds of new construction along the lakefront and on major streets, leaving mixed housing with high-rises, condominiums, mid-rise multi-units and single-family homes.

Within its borders are many smaller neighborhoods and homes like those found in Andersonville with its clean-swept, two-flat buildings. Lakewood-Balmoral is a leafy neighborhood of single-family homes and two-flats. And Edgewater Glen is a neighborhood with brick and frame single-family homes. To the east is Edgewater Beach, whose streets are lined with condominiums that overlook Lake Michigan.
