The New East Side
Much of the New East Side neighborhood has been developed on land that was used by the Illinois Central Railroad rail yards. This mixed-use area is bordered on the North by the Chicago River, Randolph Street on the South, Michigan Avenue on the West and Lake Shore Drive to the East.
Developments include: Illinois Center, Lakeshore East, Aon Center, Prudential Plaza, Park Millenium Condominiums, Hyatt Regency Chicago and the Fairmont Hotel. The residential area East of Columbus Drive is anchored by an award winning park - The Park of LakeShore East. This vibrant community is steps from the park and lake, as well as all of the culture, sports and shopping available at Chicago's center. Many of the properties are connected to the Pedway or have an entrance nearby as well as being close to public transportation.
