Little Italy / University Village Developments
Much of Chicago’s Little Italy / University Village residential real estate was constructed between 2003 to 2018. The neighborhood developments include condos, lofts, apartments, townhomes and single family homes. The idea was to create a thriving mixed use neighborhood.
University Village was built around the historic Little Italy neighborhood thanks to a massive city blessed public / private plan. Several historic Chicago neighborhoods were demolished in the process which was controversial at the time.
University Village’s three primary developments are Ivy Hall, University Commons and Roosevelt Square.
1. Ivy Hall
Demolished to make room for Ivy Hall was the old Maxwell Street neighborhood. What was once one of the poorest neighborhoods in Chicago is now decidedly middle-class. Buyers in Ivy Hall have a wide variety of options, from starter lofts for first time homebuyers to million dollar single-family homes.
2. University Commons
The University Commons development and University Station were both built over the South Water Market. This was the distribution point for Chicago’s produce and agriculture market. Here real estate buyers can now find authentic concrete lofts with a style and openness not found anywhere else in the city.
3. Roosevelt Square
The Roosevelt Square development was built over-top the remains of the old ALBA public housing area. Here buyers can find condos and townhouses at a variety of price points. There is something for every condo buyer at Roosevelt Square.
