Being a relative newcomer to the city, I assumed the RANCH Triangle got its name from some long-gone, pre-fire cattle corral, or maybe from a hidden street or two filled with low-profile, single-story houses. Nope: It’s just the part of Lincoln Park bounded by Racine, Armitage, North, and Clybourn avenues, and Halsted Street… R-A-N-C-H.
RANCH Triangle residents benefit from a string of eateries, coffee shops, bars, boutiques, and big-box stores along its bordering streets — everything from Trader Joe’s to Charlie Trotter’s — but the biggest name of the bunch may be the renowned Steppenwolf Theatre, located near the triangle’s far southern tip.
When it comes to new homes, buyers can find a smattering of new condos priced from the $190s for a one-bedroom at The Axis, 1600 N Halsted St, to the $890s for a 2,600 square-foot three-bedroom at 1919 N Sheffield Ave. Dayton Street is the site of at least three new single-family homes priced from $2.95 million to $4.75 million.
See dozens of photos of the RANCH Triangle in YoChicago’s Flickr album, or view them as a slideshow through the neighborhood’s NewHomeNotebook page. And, if you have a few hours to while away, you can sample over 10,000 YoChicago images of nearly 100 neighborhoods at Flickr.
