Bounded by 43rd Street, 51st Street, Cottage Grove Avenue, and Lake Michigan, Kenwood is one of Chicago’s standout neighborhoods in terms of condos for sale in Chicago. Originally the northern wing of Hyde Park, Kenwood was later annexed to Chicago in 1889. Originally a conclave of wealthy Chicagoans, the affluence of Kenwood’s past is still apparent today, with elite hotels-turned lakefront Chicago luxury condos along the shore and some of Chicago’s largest single-family homes and homes for sale in Chicago.
Architecture to Admire
Just a few miles south of the Loop, Kenwood combines Chicago luxury condos and upscale shopping with stylish, artsy lofts. Notable architecture includes art-deco Powhatan Apartments, a 22-story luxury apartment building completed in 1929 overlooking Lake Michigan. Like Powhatan (which is listed as a Chicago landmark), buildings nearby are also named after Native American tribes – the Algonquin, Chippewa, and the Narragansett (which is also on the National Register of Historic Places) – giving the neighborhood the offbeat nickname, “Indian Village.”
Art to Inspire
Recently reopening its doors to the neighborhood is the Hyde Park Art Center, located within Kenwood’s southernmost border. As Chicago’s oldest alternative exhibition space, the studio offers much for both artists and art-enthusiasts alike. Events include an edgy calendar of rotating exhibits, lectures, performances, and even classes in the studio.
For even more hands-on fun, check out the Little Black Pearl Art & Design Center. Hosting art appreciation and experiential learning for budding artists of all ages, this organization offers a variety of arts and crafts classes for all skill levels.
Kenwood enjoys several outstanding public schools: Kenwood Academy, Carter Middle School, King College Prep High School, Ariel Community Academy, and Beula Shoesmith Elementary School. For families interested in private school options, there are the Ancona Montessori School, Cambridge School of Chicago, Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School, and Hales Franciscan High School.
Where to Eat?

Gorée Cuisine has been serving up West African food that draws crowds from across Chicago. Restaurant-goers rave over the Dibi lamb with fried plantains, citing you often receive more than you can eat (so you have seconds the next day). For those who miss Senegalese food back home or if you’ve never tried it, check out this local gem. Other options include downhome, basic American comfort food at Valois Restaurant. The ambience is comfortable and inviting, so you can focus on getting fixed up over a delicious breakfast or sandwich.
