In recent years, those looking for the next hip neighborhood have gone west – West Loop, that is! This former warehouse district has experienced a boom in growth. Bounded by Grand Avenue to the north, Ashland Avenue to the west, the Eisenhower Expressway to the south, and the Chicago river to the east, the West Loop is a neighborhood where opposites attract, or at least live side-by-side. Developers have played it smart, preserving the industrial charm of West Loop’s warehouse past when rehabbing the old structures into new, modern condos and luxury units. The gritty, warehouse conversions of luxe lofts and condo residences are generally outfitted with the most modern fixtures and amenities to rock the senses.
Yes, we said “senses” plural. Visually, the West Loop is a feast for the eyes with its play on contrasts, as well as offering all sorts of olfactory pleasures as well. Along Randolph Street in the West Loop is the famous (some say “infamous” after they’ve eaten too much), Restaurant Row. All manner of cuisines, from sushi and dim sum to steakhouses and then some – anyone on the prowl for something tasty is sure to find what they need. And we haven’t even mentioned Greektown yet, with its tantalizing array of meze, tzatziki, and baklava.
Many big city amenities have found their way in the West Loop, with restaurants, bars, boutiques, and art galleries taking residence in the new live/work/play condos. Many trendy retailers, including Free People and Aesop, as well as boutique hotel Ace Hotels also call the West Loop home.
What kind of residents does the West Loop attract? Clearly those who enjoy hobnobbing with artists at the many galleries that reside in the neighborhood’s trendy lofts and condominiums. Locals also enjoy the proximity to Chicago’s downtown and all its perks without living in the hustle and bustle.
The West Loop combines a rare mix of metropolitan amenities with suburban elbow room. Public parks and plenty of open spaces, including Union Park – function as both a playground for the kiddies as well as an outdoor venue for various music festivals, including the annual Pitchfork Music Festival.The West Loop has hit the map only recently as a trendy neighborhood.

Perhaps it’s time to go west, young pioneer, and see what the West Loop has to offer?
