Filter by ADU eligibility

Looking for eligible properties will take a couple of minutes. We've excluded condos; while they're eligible, the association would have to decide. We recommend choosing "Not tax exempt", also.

Filter by status

Changing the radius will have a large delay in loading the properties, so use it carefully.

Filter by TOD proximity

Tip: Use "Filter by zoning" and choose the "Transit" group of zoning districts. This ordinance is officially known as Transit Served Location.

Notes about our property data

Properties without a taxpayer name are likely tax exempt. Some properties have a blue "Chicago-owned land" label. To find all Chicago-owned land, past and present, use the "Chicago-owned land" map below. Building age data is not always reliable. This feature was supported by the Metropolitan Planning Council.

You can purchase all of our Cook County data in the Map & Data Store.

Data update schedule

Property information is updated frequently; properties with frequent lookups are updated weekly and others are updated monthly. Cook County updates tax information and property classification after the second tax bill goes out (mid summer), and assessment information is updated when a triad is re-assessed (varies based on location) or for special circumstances (like the COVID-19 pandemic).
