About River West

River West is an urban Cinderella story. The once-industrial area has been rediscovered and transformed seemingly overnight into a growing urban neighborhood.

Factories and warehouses are now home to spacious residential lofts, apartments and condos. Meanwhile, high-rises with modern amenities continue to go up to meet increasing demand.

Bordered by the Kennedy Expressway to the west and the River to the east, residents love the area’s convenience and its urban aesthetic. River West’s location also makes for stunning views of downtown and quick commutes to The Loop, suburbs and O’Hare International Airport via car, bus or the CTA Blue Line.


In addition to new residents, the area has welcomed galleries, restaurants and bars serving up cocktails, bites and nightlife.
