South Loop

Characterized by towering high rises with dramatic views of Lake Michigan and historic pockets that reflect the area’s storied past, the South Loop is a distinctive Chicago neighborhood.

Chicago's original Gold Coast in the late 19th century, the South Loop was once home to the likes of Marshall Field, George Pullman, and Philip Armour. Today the vibrant neighborhood is known for its access to the lakefront, shops, restaurants, parks, Museum Campus, and The Loop.  

The South Loop is comprised of several historic areas that contribute to the neighborhood’s one-of-a-kind architecture. Once a thriving center of printing and publishing businesses, Printer’s Row features a number of buildings that have been converted into residential lofts but maintain landmark status. Similarly, Motor Row District features architecturally significant buildings that were established in the early 1900s. Prairie Avenue District is also nestled in the South Loop. Meanwhile, several apartment and condominium buildings are under construction, bringing thousands of new residences to the neighborhood.

The South Loop’s housing boom has brought with it an influx of retailers along with eateries and nightlife on South Michigan Avenue. The Roosevelt Collection is a popular destination featuring a movie theater and an assortment of retailers.

Museum Campus is the cultural hub of the South Loop featuring attractions including the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, and Soldier Field. Residents also enjoy being in close proximity to Northerly Island and public transportation including the CTA’s Roosevelt station.
