Summer in the Southport Corridor

We hope you enjoy the article below written by our Director of Sales, Sheri, in the JM Partners Blog at Jameson Sotheby's International Realty.


Many of us can agree, few things in life are sweeter than summer in Chicago. We have the Cubs, Sox, Millenium Park, Lake Michigan scintillating in the sun and neighborhood street fests.

One street (actually avenue) in particular beckons in the summer: Southport. Young, old, families, 20-somethings and even dogs love the Southport Corridor in Lakeview. That’s the only part that stays the same. So much about Southport is changing and for the better. New shops and restaurants keep cropping up, just in time for al fresco, dog-friendly dining season.

New construction homes are improving the landscape of the Southport Corridor as well. JM Partners is introducing three new construction homes by Bloomfield Development Company, LLC. Residences at 3716 N. Lakewood Ave. and 3643 N. Lakewood Ave. are each situated on a 30-foot, extra-wide lot. 3643 N. Lakewood also boasts two rare, highly sought-after features: a raised patio off of the family room and a breezeway to an attached garage. Both homes are just a couple of blocks from Blaine Elementary. Bloomfield expects to complete these homes this fall.

Bloomfield is also starting construction on a new single family residence at 1452 W. Henderson. This home is only two blocks from the Southport Brown Line L stop and is close to all the shops and restaurants in the heart of the Southport Corridor. Bloomfield is on track to complete the home on Henderson in spring 2016.

Are you ready to live near Southport yet? At least grab lunch and maybe even a new outfit there. You just might get hooked.
