THE NEAR SOUTH SIDE - A PLACE TO LIVE, PLAY AND WORK
From young singles to empty-nesters, people are finding homes in new high-rise towers, in rehabilitated coach houses, in lofts converted from old warehouses, or in communities of new townhouses.
Explore our diverse neighborhoods and visit the restaurants, retail shops, museums, galleries and historic sites of spots like Printers Row, Chinatown, the Prairie Avenue Historic District, Motor Row, and Central Station for just a start. Experience amazing events at McCormick Place, the nation's largest convention center; or peruse the White Sox schedule for a home game at U.S. Cellular Field.
All in all, the Near South encompasses many amenities from retail, health care, fitness, churches, hospitals... the essentials that link you to the community. It's also a center for education. Over 24 colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher learning call the Near South home.
