West Loop

Some city neighborhoods are known for their quiet, tree-lined streets and their small-town atmosphere. Not the West Loop. Gritty, glamorous, noisy and exciting, this may be Chicago’s most urban residential neighborhood. This is where chefs come before dawn to select the meat and produce their customers will enjoy that night and where tourists and locals knock back shots of Ouzo in Greektown bars.

Traditionally a commercial and industrial area, the West Loop’s residential possibilities were first discovered by artists who converted the industrial lofts to living spaces and galleries. Now home to a wider mix of young professionals and other hardcore urbanites, the area retains its edgy feel, and avant-garde galleries co-exist with upscale restaurants and clubs to form the perfect setting for city living.

Housing Stock

Renovated lofts may have started the neighborhood’s residential boom, but it didn’t take long for developers to get in on the act. Dozens of high-rise and mid-rise condo buildings were built over the last 20 years or so, and several more are under development, most displaying the glass and steel industrial-chic vibe that defines the West Loop.
