Streeterville’s origins date back to the late 1880s when local outlaw and all around Chicago character George Wellington Streeter staked claim of the shoreline off of Superior Street. Streeter devised an elaborate plan to sell valuable shoreline property and make millions off of wealthy landowners who actually owned the property. Local press followed the story for years as Streeter forged federal land grants and battled local authorities until landing in prison in 1902.
The neighborhood is now home to some Chicago’s most popular attractions and landmarks including the world renown Michigan Avenue shopping district, also known as the Magnificent Mile, the John Hancock Center, the ageless Chicago Water Tower, countless upscale hotels, restaurants and features many Streeterville apartment rental choices. Its residents also enjoy the benefits of lakefront living, with Oak Street Beach and Chicago’s #1 tourist attraction Navy Pier only a stone’s throw away.
