Chicago’s iconic business district has embraced the beauty of balance. Once considered all business, the Loop has become an increasingly popular place to live, work and play.
The Loop’s evolution began in the 1990s as developers built new high-rises and repurposed office buildings for residential use. Today homebuyers can find a wealth of housing options in the historic center of downtown Chicago.
In addition to luxury condominium buildings interspersed among office high rises, the Loop also is home to several large-scale mixed-use developments with a variety of housing types, from condominiums and townhomes to row homes. These planned communities include amenities such as grocery stores and schools that were previously unavailable in the Loop. Home prices reflect the growing popularity of the Loop as a residential area.
The Loop offers a unique opportunity to live among Chicago’s most iconic landmarks and must-see attractions -- from Grant Park, Millennium Park and Navy Pier to the Theatre District and the Art Institute. Residents also have a front row seat to Chicago's marquee events, such as the Taste of Chicago, the Air and Water Show and the Chicago Blues Festival.
Residents and guests can enjoy fine dining, cocktails and quick bites at the plentiful restaurants in the area. Shopping is an easy stroll down the Magnificent Mile. Music is found at any number of venues and events. And on Monday, when it’s time to get back to work, the office is just a walk away.
