About Logan Square
Perhaps the most striking intersection in the city, Logan Square is the site of a fabulous European-like square that includes a massive marble column celebrating the centennial of Illinois statehood. Logan Boulevard, which enters the square from the east, is suitably grand with huge graystones fronting the tree lined thoroughfare. The variety of architectural styles found in Logan Square, from Art Nouveau to Prairie, and Renaissance Revival to Gothic, show a variety that sets the neighborhood apart.
Due to its proximity to booming neighborhoods such as Bucktown and Wicker Park, Logan Square has also begun to undergo massive renovation. The old, stately graystones and brownstones are being restored at a dizzying pace and new construction condominiums, single family homes and town homes have been sprouting everywhere. Take a stroll down Logan Boulevard and you will find Starbucks, along with dining options like the famous Boulevard Cafe which also features live music.
With truly affordable rents, easy street parking and convenient public transportation including close access to the Kennedy Expressway, Logan Square has become quite a desirable neighborhood.
