ABC7: Millennials buy Englewood homes, help transform neighborhood
In this case the couple you see in this story from our ABC affiliate is one case in point. Not only that perhaps the future of many south side communities are couples like them. The main point we want the younger generation to come to these communities to essentially transform them.
I think JP Paulus - one of the bloggers here - stated that costs is what led him to Chatham. It's much less expensive to buy a house on the south side then to find a place on the north side. The couple you see in this video essentially says the same thing.
What may be a sore point for many who are looking for a good bargain when it comes to housing is crime. Englewood still has that reputation even though we know so many people are working to change that.
Either way what if Englewood eventually becomes the recipient of some new construction activity similar to what was reported by DNA Info if you simply drive due east along 63rd street.
