Bronzeville Neighborhood in Chicago

Bronzeville Neighborhood in Chicago

The Bronzeville neighborhood in Chicago is a community which enjoys a rich history in the city of Chicago.  In the early 20th century, Bronzeville was known as the “Black Metropolis”, one of the nation’s most significant areas of African-American urban history. Today, the Bronzeville neighborhood in Chicago is a popular neighborhood for many upwardly mobile families because of its proximity to both downtown and the lakefront.
There is also the abundance of graystones which are considered classical Chicago architecture.  In the last 20 years, there has been an abundance of renovations and new construction in the area.  As you travel the neighborhood streets, you’ll see a mix of newer construction alongside graystones that have lasted a century.  You’ll also see condo buildings and multi-unit buildings all which serve to attract a diversity of residents to the area.

Bronzeville also has several points of interest.  Residents are minutes away from Chicago’s lakefront and the establishment of the 31st Street beach and harbor has only increased enjoyment of this location on lakefront.  Also, of interest is the Harold Washington Cultural Center, Sox Stadium on 35th Street and both the downtown museum campus and Museum of Science Industry can be reached within 10-15 minutes.
Property values have remained healthy.  There have been a significant number of foreclosures in this neighborhood but due to the continued interest in the community, investors and potential homeowners have been quick to grab and renovate these properties.  At this time, a typical 3-4 unit  graystone with a quality rehab can easily realize an after repair value of $350-400,000.
