Streeterville Chicago Real Estate & Condos For Sale
The colorful history of Streeterville is one of its most defining facets. In 1886, steamboat captain George Streeter ran his ship onto a sandbar off the Lake Michigan shore, and claimed the land to be his own. He invited building contractors to pile their rubbish around the sandbar, extending the area with the marshlands created from the construction wastes.
A long and heated dispute (including shootouts) between Streeter and the city government followed. But after Streeter’s death in 1918, the courts finally ruled against his estate’s claims to the territory. Despite the bitter battle, the city commemorated the “Cap” by naming the neighborhood after him. A statue of him can also be found at the site where he originally made his claim.
Streeterville today is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Chicago, and is the site of many of the city’s most iconic buildings and landmarks. With the neighborhood’s limited land area, commercial and residential towers share space on the same streets, resulting in a highly dense urban community. But the neighborhood’s 50 acre Navy Pier, a major Chicago landmark and recreation destination, offers residents plenty of open space and a quick respite from the unending buzz of the big city.
Streeterville’s territory is generally defined as all land to the east of the Michigan Avenue. It is bounded by Lake Michigan to the north and east, the Chicago River to the south, and the Magnificent Mile to the west.
