Create a Luxury Experience, Uplift Our Community and Celebrate Uniqueness

growing a community
Our mission revolves around serving residents and our community and creating environments in which differences are celebrated.

We create a luxury living experience, starting with boutique units and ending with around-the-clock emergency maintenance service (you can literally reach us 24/7). We deploy snow removal at one inch or more, which if you live in Chicago, is kind of a big deal. We regularly beautify and maintain buildings’ common areas, with 390+ art installations and professional cleaning. Residents are pleased with what we do, evidenced by a renewal rate of 80% for the past seven years.

As a family-owned Bronzeville establishment, we support local businesses, actively “green” Bronzeville through 40+ landscape installations and engage in nonprofit initiatives. Many South Side Stories team members, including Jon Mickelson (one of the owners), live in the community. Residents are our neighbors and friends.

As a diverse team, we believe differences should be celebrated. Ultimately, South Side Stories is all about stories. We celebrate Bronzeville’s story, and perhaps soon, your story.
