If you want to buy a well located condo or loft then the Printers Row area of the South Loop should absolutely be considered.

Locally, Printer’s Row has quite a reputation for drawing eclectic and interesting people into it’s net.  It’s a little neighborhood where everyone seems to know each other.  Possibly because on most nights you’ll find half the residents at nearby Hackney’s Bar chatting over a beer or some dinner.

Printers Row is a fairly small neighborhood south of downtown Chicago that stretches from Congress Parkway on the north to Polk Street on the south and from the Chicago River on the west to Plymouth Court on the east.

The buildings in Printers Row were originally established for the printing and publishing industry. These buildings have now been converted into apartments, lofts and condos but many are still known by their original publishing house names. The long, narrow streets allow for the maximum amount of sunlight to enter these tall buildings, necessary at one time to assist in the engraving and typesetting processes, and now a great feature of the loft conversions which occupy many of the old buildings. Currently, many business people and professionals occupy the units since living in these buildings allows them to walk to work.

Printer’s Row retains its connection to its literary history with an Annual Literature Festival each June. Started in 1984, it draws booksellers and readers from all over the city. Hundreds of stalls span both Dearborn and Harrison Streets, and almost any book in any edition can be found. The Literature Festival offers everything from cheap paper backs to rare first editions; you name it you can find it here.

As a place to live, the area is quite convenient for quickly getting to the lake for a bike ride or to Grant Park and Museum campus…all the more reason to consider this little gem of a neighborhood home sweet home.  Several of our Best Chicago Properties Brokers live in the Printer’s Row area and are happy to share with you what they know regarding the best buildings, lofts and condos…and the ones to be avoided!
