Lakeview & Lakeshore

Highlights

Nestled beside City Park, Lakeview has a strong sense of community among its residence. This is most evident along Harrison Avenue, the main drag lined with restaurants and stylish shops. Many of  the Lakeview and Lakeshore homes were built between 1940 and 1969, with a new resurgence in the last ten years.

Families and young professionals are the primary residents of Lakeview and Lakeshore, as well as college students and urban sophisticates.
