Hyde Park Luxury Condos & Houses are located right ACROSS from the University of Chicago. We are as close to the center of campus as possible, & in the middle of an exciting development corridor. The University of Chicago has invested over $2 Billion within a few blocks of our location over the past few years, and much more private, public, & University investment is either underway or planned for the near future. The replacement of under-utilized properties with well-designed, high quality, vibrant educational & commercial developments in all directions bodes well for the development & increase of both area amenities & property values in the near future.

University of Chicago: Selected Completed & Planned Developments
The University of Chicago is in the midst of aggressive expansion/development. Because the University has stated a desire to deliberately build a concentrated community about its main campus & due to the fact most of their available properties are in "South Campus," much of this development is located near Hyde Park Luxury properties. The University of Chicago Police Patrol Area was extended south, & area schools (Law School & Law Library, Harris School of Public Policy, SSA, Chicago Press, etc) have been joined by new developments including:
- New $30 Million University of Chicago Police Headquarters / Office Building / Parking (61st Street & Drexel)
- New $114 Million Logan Center for the Visual & Performing Arts (Cafe, 2 elevated lounges, classrooms, auditoriums, theater, exhibition/performance space, box office)
- New $165 Million 61st Street & Ellis Avenue Dorm (largest on campus), Restaurant, Midway Market, Subway Restaurant

Midway Plaisance Enhancements
Due to University of Chicago expansion, the fact that the University now houses more undergraduates south of the Midway than north, & related area improvements, the Midway Plaisance is quickly becomming the middle rather than the southern edge of campus. The University of Chicago & City of Chicago have thus partnered to enhance the Midway Plaisance & pedestrian experience with the following projects:
- New Ice Skating Rink, Skate Rental, & Cafe
- New $10 Million Midway Crossings (wide, well-lit pedestrian walkways across the Midway Plaisance Park along Ellis & Woodlawn connecting North & South Campus)
- New $3 Million Winter Garden (southern portion of Midway Plaisance b/w Ellis & Woodlawn)
Hyde Park Day School
Build and run by The University of Chicago Foundation, a new $30 million home for the Hyde Park Day School recently opened on 63rd Street & Ellis Avenue, two blocks south of the Condos.
$500 Million Barack Obama Presidential Library?
The $500 Million Barack Obama Presidential Library will be built either east (Woodlawn/Jackson Park) or west (Washington Park) of the Condos & Houses.

Meadville-Lombard Theological School/National Education Headquarters
The new Meadville-Lombard Theological School / National Education Headquarters has been proposed to be constructed on 62nd Street and Ellis Avenue. This would bring another high-quality building, residential & commuter students, & related amenities to the area.
Delapidated Grove Parc projects are being replaced with a transformational $272 Million development; 95,000 sq ft. of retail & high-quality LEED certified "green" mixed-income housing. It was designed to rehabilitate the area immediately southwest of campus between The University of Chicago and the CTA / Green Line. Phase I has been completed, Phase II is almost complete, and the other phases are slated to be completed in late 2016.
