Edgewater was developed in the 1880's when developers started purchasing orchards and truck farms, and cutting down the woods in the Lake View Township to make way for future development. From 1870 - 1887, the Township's population grew from 2000 citizens to 45000.
Prominent developer John Lewis Cochran built the first residential subdivision in Edgewater, the northeastern section of Lakeview, in 1885. Cochran was originally a tobacco salesman hailing from Philadelphia - he moved to Chicago in 1885 and brought his Philly culture and geography with him. This can be seen by prominent street names in Chicago including Thorndale, Bryn Mawr, and Devon just to name a few. Many of Cochran's homes can still be found in the Lakewood Balmoral Historic District.
Today, Edgewater contains several beaches throughout the neighborhood. East Edgewater has a skyline of high-rises, condos and mid-rise homes. To the west, Edgewater mostly contains commercial businesses, single family homes, as well as two, three, and four-story flats.
