Filled with a ready supply of well-maintained, turn-of-the-century bungalows and renewed retail momentum, Portage Park has become a huge draw for those seeking single family homes. The re-energized Six Corners commercial district at Irving Park Road, Cicero Avenue and Milwaukee Avenue, spurred on by a city-sponsored master plan, has helped attract new tenants to the area including Aldi's, Culver's and Community Tavern. Along with proximity to the Blue Line and Metra, the new commercial activity has helped boost real estate values in the area -- 3-bed, 2-bath units have jumped 10.5 percent in the last two years, and 11.3% in the last year, according to figures obtained from Philip Schwartz, a broker and President of The Portage Park Neighborhood Association. To provide a sense of what's available in this fast-growing northwest side neighborhood, we put together cross-section of on-the-market homes and condos.
