Looking for Things to Do Near Downtown Chicago? Here’s Your Streeterville Neighborhood Guide!

Behind the Namesake: Then & Now

Following the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, the shores of Lake Michigan surrounding the city were commonly used as grounds for cleanup. During this time “Captain” George Wellington Streeter’s ship had become lodged upon a sandbar in present day’s Streeterville. Streeter welcomed building contractors to the area and claimed this newly created neighborhood as his own.

Today, thriving with tourists and residents alike, Streeterville is a sure stand out in Chicago culture. With sweeping lakefront property and famous Navy Pier, the Streeterville neighborhood is eccentric and exciting. Streeterville is a perfect combination of modern and classic in the architecture, food, and attractions; there is truly something for everyone.

Streeterville Attractions

Home of Navy Pier, Streeterville hosts a magnitude of attractions in Chicago. Navy Pier houses some fabulous dining options including DMK Burger and Fish Bar, Riva, Big City Chicken, Goddess and the Baker and much more. Feel free to take cocktails to go while you continue to explore the pier as well! Most iconic is the gigantic Ferris wheel positioned in the center of the pier. Indoor gardens, carnival rides and yachts line the rest of the pier.

Fireworks at Navy Pier can be seen from most of downtown Chicago every Wednesday and Saturday night!

Streeterville is also home to an abundance of higher level academia and one of the top 15 hospitals in the United States. Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Medical School, Loyola Law School, and University of Chicago Booth School of Business are all located in Streeterville.

The Magnificent Mile is known by all as home to some of the greatest shopping and restaurants the city has to offer. Travel by water taxi or catch the amazing, and educational Architectural Boat Tour down the Chicago River- a perfect way to enjoy a Chicago summer day! The Architectural Boat Tour is a must for all visitors and locals of the city!


Nestled into the back of a building of the ‘Mag Mile’ is Purple Pig. Best known for their next level charcuterie, cheeses and creative small plates and ‘magnificent’ wine list! Yolk Streeterville is a delicious and popular spot for breakfast or brunch. Enjoy the sites of Streeterville with sidewalk seating at Coco Pazzo Café; a longtime neighborhood favorite Italian spot. Some other top notable mentions include Cafecito, Beatrix, and Disotto Enoteca.

Neighborhood Living

It’s no wonder people are looking to call Streeterville home – it is home to the riverwalk that lines the city, lake front property and incredible downtown city views, but is much quieter, more residential, and more tree-lined than the central part of downtown. Streeterville residents enjoy the wide selection of boutique fitness studios, like Orange Theory Fitness, Shred415, and Core Power Yoga.

Downtown Chicago – Then and Now: Streeterville Edition

Navy Pier, the Magnificent Mile, the Skyline Stage, the John Hancock Center. These are just a few of the famous attractions that make up the ever-popular Streeterville neighborhood! Streeterville is known for its unique restaurants, one-of-a-kind skyscrapers, and amazing scenery. This area also has a rich history that has made it into the luxury neighborhood that it is today.


The man, the myth, the legend — George Streeter is the one to thank for helping to create what we now know as Streeterville. Before he arrived by boat in the late 1880’s, the area was not much more than a patch of land and a sandbar. Even still, he recognized the possibility of the place and kept his eye on it. After more than 180 acres of new land were created by the Lincoln Park Board, Streeter knew that he had to take action. He wanted to claim the area as his own, under the name “District of Lake Michigan.”

For years, he battled for that right. Unfortunately, Streeter did not have the best reputation due to his reckless personality. He was frequently sued for fraud in his attempts to claim the land. Despite all of this, his lifelong battle for the property made him infamous and his legacy lives on.


The neighborhood now has come a long way since its humble beginnings. Streeterville is home to many luxury apartments throughout the neighborhood! With its upscale stores on the Magnificent Mile, prestigious campuses like Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, and Navy Pier — the #1 most visited attraction in Chicago, it’s no wonder why the neighborhood is one of the most sought after. The dining experiences, the landmarks, the culture — they are all here waiting for you to explore!

Ready to have a new luxury Streeterville apartment? Then call us or stop by our office at 180 N. Wacker to get started. We’d be happy to keep you in the loop!
