Wicker Park Chicago Real Estate, Condos & Homes for Sale
Wicker Park Chicago Real Estate: Along with adjacent Bucktown, Wicker Park is one of Chicago’s trendiest neighborhoods. It is also one of the city’s most historic – the Wicker Park Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and much of the neighborhood was designated a Chicago Landmark District.
Wicker Park got its name from its founders, brothers Charles and Joel Wicker, who started developing the area in the 1870s. They commissioned the 4-acre Wicker Park, around which many of Chicago’s earliest millionaires and community leaders constructed their homes. After the Great Chicago Fire, many the city’s first brownstone homes were also built here.
Over the years, many of the neighborhoods’ mansions were transformed into flats and apartments and Wicker Park evolved into a bohemian district, with artists and musicians moving here to take advantage of the lower housing and living costs. Today, the neighborhood has retained that distinctive creative vibe introduced by its resident artists, with the iconic Flat Iron Building serving as its arts and culture center. But along with this, Wicker Park has also evolved into an affluent community, with successful professionals and business leaders moving to the area for its convenient location and vibrant lifestyle.
