One of the most intriguing emerging neighborhoods is North Kenwood-Oakland on Chicago's south side. Nestled between the eclectic Hyde Park neighborhood and the rapidly advancing South Loop, North Kenwood-Oakland is poised to be Chicago's next great neighborhood. The transformation is already well underway and the Lake Park Crescent development anchors the neighborhood beginning adjacent to the lakefront.
North Kenwood-Oakland is surrounded by beautifully preserved historic districts, including the picturesque Drexel Boulevard, lined with greystones and mansions of yesteryear. Several inviting neighborhood parks offer a tranquil respite from busy city life and Chicago's newest 2.8-acre Park is under construction in the heart of the LPC community. If easy access to the lakefront is what you desire, Lake Park Crescent is just steps from Burnham Park and the lakefront's beaches, bike paths, and recreation areas. Future plans for the neighborhood include a dramatically enhanced retail district and a new bridge connecting the Lake Park Crescent community directly to the Lake.
