About River North
If River North had a motto it would be this: build it and they will come.
First came the art galleries and restaurants, and then the hip, urban homebuyers followed.
Stretching from the Chicago River to Chicago Avenue, west of the Magnificent Mile, the old loft district has found its groove.
Dozens of residential developments in recent years give buyers a lot of choices. Classic timber lofts, upscale row homes and contemporary high-rises range in price from $300,000 to several million dollars. Development has also pushed west of the Chicago River into an area dubbed River West, which includes a number of new condominium buildings.
Chicago's biggest office building, the Merchandise Mart, anchors the southern edge of the neighborhood along the revitalized Chicago River and the new pedestrian Riverwalk that includes restaurants, park seating, and people watching, kayak and boat rentals. Residents have convenient access to several bus lines as well as Red and Brown line L stops.
Today, River North is home to many of Chicago's premier eateries with famed chefs. It’s also a great place to get a fabulous steak. Both River North and River West are packed with shopping, entertainment and nightlife, including some of the city’s trendiest clubs and well-known favorites.
