South Loop is the new kid on the block. Just south of Chicago’s downtown, bounded by Lake Michigan and the Chicago River (save for Chinatown) “The Loop,” is an edge-of-your-seat ‘hood that has captured the imagination of the Midwest. This was once the bonified industrial part of town, dotted with railyards and train stations, factories and warehouses; today, South Loop boasts some of the city’s most innovative mixed-use buildings and is home to singles, families, and retirees. Perhaps to remind locals of this neighborhood’s history is Dearborn Station, the oldest train station in Chicago that still stands where it was first constructed due south of Printers Row. Its bones clearly remind those of South Loop’s past, however it’s function is now a retail and office space.
Although you wouldn’t guess it looking at the brand new high-rise apartments and ultra-modern factory lofts, South Loop has a sordid past. Once home to Chicago’s vices – the three “Bs” – brothels, bars, and burlesque theaters. For many years, this area was considered one of the city’s Skid Rows.
Today, South Loop attracts those eager to live, work, and play in the neighborhood in which they live. This translates into a dynamic district undergoing a flurry of development. Just about everyone wants a piece of The Loop, with investors and developers clamoring to build the next best loft conversion or sparkling high-rise condo – always with multi-use space in mind. The new structures are equipped with the trendiest restaurants, coffee shops, and urban shopping. South Loopers also enjoy plenty of open space, with Grant Park and Millennium Park. The neighborhood is also home to some of Chicago’s most exciting attractions, including the Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, and Field Museum.
Judging by the South Loop skyline, this neighborhood isn’t close to slowing down. Buyers have a lot to choose from – stylishly converted warehouse lofts to urban townhomes and high-rises. And just a short train ride away from downtown Chicago, living in this neighborhood makes commuting a breeze. And when football season is upon us, get your season passes ready as Soldier Field is a hop, skip, and jump away. To sum up, The Loop has an urban, industrial vibe and is on the edge of what’s trending in the Windy City. And the downtown views? Breathtaking.
