Riverside Real Estate
Riverside lies just 11 miles west of the Loop, though you would never know it is here. The town is “off the grid”, with a curvilinear street structure unlike anything in the area. This makes for a breathtaking suburb with all the conveniences that being near downtown offers.
Riverside is actually a national historic landmark, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (a la Central Park, NY), for being the first planned community in the U.S. The quaint downtown has several restaurants, many shops, a gluten-free bakery, and even a distillery!
The Metra BNSF out of Union Station has 3 Stations in Riverside — Harlem, Riverside, and Hollywood.
Riverside also has easy access to both I-55 (Stevenson Expressway) and I-290 (Eisenhower Expressway).
Ogden Ave can also be a traffic hedge, getting you downtown in about 35 mins.
