Four Things Give Fulton Market It’s Winning Vibe
Fulton market is simply Chicago’s hottest neighborhood. And for some really good reasons.
1. A Stellar Location
The Fulton Market District location can’t be beat thanks to its proximity to the Downtown Chicago. It’s one of the best walkable Chicago neighborhoods and is a very accessible place to live because a new CTA station opened here a few years ago to serve the influx of new residents. Plus the walkable Metra train stations add to the accessibility and convenience.
2. Chicago’s Tech Boom
Fulton Market was Chicago’s economic engine in the 19th Century. Today it’s been reborn and is powering the Chicago’s tech boom. This former meatpacking district has come a long way and is continually evolving.
Previously, this was a wholesale area full of cold storage buildings. The streets were bustling with meat, fish, and produce trucks and workers. These days it’s bustling with Google office workers.
Thanks to these old ‘bones’, Fulton Market still exudes an industrial charm. Former brick and timber buildings are being converted to stunning Fulton Market lofts and condos. And these buildings come with unique layouts and design features.
3. Amazing Food Choices
Fulton Market is of course home to Chicago’s famous “Restaurant Row” along Randolph Street. It’s really the centerpiece of Fulton Market District.
Many of these restaurants sit at the top of Chicago’s best lists. Bars and clubs like The Aviary, CH Distillery, The Betty, and Federales are all busy places to see and be seen. So, in recent years, this has not only become a place to dine out, but a place to live.
The Soho House Chicago is a hotel and members only ‘club’ for creatives. It contributes to the modern-urban chic vibe of the neighborhood.
4. Landmark Status
The City Council designated the Fulton-Randolph Market District as a Chicago Landmark in July 2015. Improvements are on going.
For example, a streetscape beautification program has made it more pedestrian friendly. Other recent projects include widening the sidewalks, cobbled intersections, and more attractive street seating.
In short, historic Fulton Market is being modernized and restored to make suitable for the mixed-use economy of the 21st Century and safe for pedestrians enjoying the many shops and restaurants.
