Public Housing Museum on Taylor

I'm sorry if this topic has been beat to death! I don't follow this neighborhood.

Does anyone know if this still might happen?

  • Michael Ramstedt Managing Broker, Krain Real Estate

    No idea. Haven't heard anything. But would love to know if anyone else has.

Considering a move to Tri-Taylor, questions about the area

Hello all.

I lived in the area for a month or two some time ago - wow, over thirteen years, now that I think about it. My girlfriend and I are looking at properties in the area, and I'm surprised at how the area has changed. Looking through recent posts here, it looks like you all love your neighborhood. It's good to see.

Hello all.

I lived in the area for a month or two some time ago - wow, over thirteen years, now that I think about it. My girlfriend and I are looking at properties in the area, and I'm surprised at how the area has changed. Looking through recent posts here, it looks like you all love your neighborhood. It's good to see.

One of the places we're looking at is a little west of Western. Just down the street is Lexington and Campbell, which has a blue light cop camera stationed at the corner. There's also a boarded up school across the street from it. Should this be a concern? From what I know of the area today, east of the train tracks is where we want to be, but this area is east of the tracks. Thoughts on that?

We've also been looking south of there on Arthington, which looks nice.

Any advice or insight would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading.

    There is some really great information about the neighborhood on http://www.streetadvisor.com/tri-taylor-chicago-cook-county-illinois

    Lots of great deals to be had over here if you're looking to buy. The area is definitely on the rise with beautiful affordable homes. I also invested in the area west of Western 2 years ago. So far each year has looked different, its been really quiet for the most part on this side. But to be honest, there are some days where it looks questionable, hence the blue light. I will say, if you plan on investing in the neighborhood, you have to be prepared for the long haul as it will get better. It just wont happen tomorrow. Good news is that there are plans in the works to re-purpose that school into a city office building which will bring a little more stability back to our side of Tri Taylor. So good things are happening, just have to be patient.

Housing Needed

As you may know, Chicago Urban Art Retreat Cente has a Women's Residence on our 2nd floor. We offer safe comfortable furnished housing for individual women. We are full and now need to find alternatives for women who inquire.
Does anyone know of a rental opportunity for a single woman who needs to leave her husband's house? just got laid off from the bakery. Works for a Temp agency with lots of experience in bakery work. She is hopeful she can get another situation soon.
If you have a small inexpensive rental or know of one for this mature woman, please contact Urban Art Retreat and we will let this woman know about the possibility. Thanks a lot. Dianna@urbanartretreat.com
