Logan Square Real Estate Listings and Information

Logan Square

The community area of Logan Square is, in general, bounded by the Metra/Milwaukee District North Line railroad on the west, the North Branch of the Chicago River on the east, Diversey Avenue, on the north, and Bloomingdale Avenue on the south. The area is characterized by the prominent historical boulevards, stately greystones and large bungalow-style homes. The term Logan Square is used here to describe the community area defined by U.S. census tracts, not one of the number of smaller, more loosely defined residential neighborhoods within the Logan Square community.
The community area and neighborhood are named for General John A. Logan who served in the Civil War, and later in Congress. One of the most striking intersections in the city, the square itself is a large public green space (designed by architect William LeBaron Jenney, Landscape architect, Jens Jensen and others) formed as the grand northwest terminus of the Chicago Boulevard System and the junction of Kedzie and Logan Boulevards and Milwaukee Avenue, which was once known as "Northwest Plank Road" and traces its origins back to a Native American trail, prior to 1830. At the center of the square, known as Logan Square is the Illinois Centennial Monument, built in 1918 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Illinois' statehood (geographic coordinates as shown above for this article). The monument, designed by Henry Bacon, famed architect of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC and sculpted by Evelyn Longman, is a single 70-foot (25-meter) tall "Tennessee-pink" marble Doric column, based upon the same proportions as the columns of the Parthenon in Ancient Greece, and topped by an eagle, in reference to the state flag and symbol of the state and the nation. The monument was funded by the Benjamin Ferguson Fund. Reliefs surrounding the base depict allegorical figures of Native Americans, explorers, Jesuit missionaries, farmers and laborers intended to represent Illinois contributions to the nation through transportation as a railroad crossroads for passengers and freight (represented by a train extending across the arm of one of the figures), education, commerce, grain and commodities, religion and exploration along with the "pioneering spirit" during the state's first century.

Shopping
Young, hip and gritty Logan Square has shopping to match, from funky record stores to high-end boutiques: Logan Square isn't a shopping mecca yet, but the stores in this developing neighborhood are well worth a visit. Given the types of people you see strolling in their skinny jeans along Milwaukee Avenue, it should come as no surprise that three record stores made our list of top shops in the area. Until Logan adds more boutiques and shoe stores to its roster, you can extend your day of shopping with visits to the area's incredible restaurants and bars.
