The Pros And Cons Of Living At No. Ten Lofts

Pros

No. Ten Lofts is the real deal. These are authentic Chicago converted warehouse lofts, not soft-lofts. Brick and timber abound here. These lofts feature high ceilings with massive windows allowing fantastic light.

Located at 1040 W. Adams, they also offer a super convenient central location in the West Loop. It’s not too far west which means all the best West Loop restaurants are right outside your door. Plus the beloved Bartelme Park is only a block away. And from here the CTA is also easily accessed.

And if you want to walk to work in the Loop or Fulton Market this location is ideal. It’s not too far west so you’ll find that many people walk.

Cons

If loft living is new to you, know that timber ceilings and old wood floors can allow more noise than a modern building. And compared to smaller loft buildings like the West Loop’s Beacon Lofts, No. Ten Lofts is quite large. Thus it’s a bit of a maze that takes some time to navigate at first.
