DOWNTOWN OAK PARK
An enviable place to live & work.
Located in Oak Park’s thriving Downtown District and major commercial thoroughfare—with convenient access to every major form of Chicago public transportation—1010 Lake Street gives you the best of all worlds: a brilliant urban and suburban experience.
Enveloped amongst major demand generators such as renowned restaurants, exciting nightlife, specialty shops and cultural points of interest, such as the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed houses in the world and the birthplace of Ernest Hemingway that people the world over come to visit, business could not hope to find a more perfect home.
Historic Oak Park offers a perfect combination of work and family. Formally established in 1902, the Village of Oak Park was settled in 1837 when Joseph Kettlestrings purchased land 10 miles west of Downtown Chicago. Two centuries later, Oak Park has continued to brilliantly grow, becoming well-known as the "World's Largest Village" and a model community for life in "a small town," while sitting within a metropolis of millions.
Of the many attractions Oak Park boasts, the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed homes top the list. As the largest collection of Wright-designed residential properties in the world, here is where Wright developed his architectural style that made him the most famous architect of the 20th Century—and still has the world talking. Oak Park is also the birthplace and boyhood home of famed writer Ernest Hemingway who is equally celebrated with the Ernest Hemingway Museum.
Popular retailers and restaurants are also sprinkled alongside privately-owned, one-of-a-kind establishments, giving Oak Park the eclectically balanced appeal for which it is known. Those who choose to live or work here truly get the convenience and allure of city living, but with the approachability, warmth and charm of a caring, tight-knit community.
