Evanston IL is booming. If you are a long-time resident, you have noticed the changes in the last 10 to 15 years. There was a time when the town was a sleepy bedroom community but that has changed.
When I began my real estate career at Coldwell Banker Evanston over 15 years ago there were only a few restaurants in town. People would often travel to the city of Chicago for entertainment and shopping. Rarely would singles and young couples have an interest in moving to Evanston IL.
That all changed in the last decade. Developers started building high-rise condo buildings. Northwestern University is growing by leaps and bounds. This all helped to make our town very desirable.
The City of Evanston had changed their zoning laws to enable the expansion of Evanston IL. They wanted to gain a tax base to help the town grow. Along with all the new buildings came many great places to dine, shop and wonderful entertainment.
Since Evanston IL is booming many people want to live in the city. Singles and young people are flocking to the city of Evanston. No longer do so many folks travel to the of Chicago for so many activities.
The piece is meant to discuss Evanston in general terms. In future blogs with will write and describe all the developments available in town. If one had not visited the community in 20 years and took a trip to town, the downtown would hardly be recognizable.
