Living In River West
River West real estate is a buzz of late. It features a wide variety of condos, lofts and townhouses for sale. There are even a few single family homes sprinkled about the neighborhood. River West has always been considered just a tad off the beaten path. And you can still occasionally find better prices than the Fulton Market just to the east. That said, in recent years the neighborhood has seen a huge surge in development causing prices to increase.
River West sits in zip codes 60611 and 60654 and is located just a short distance from Downtown Chicago with all its benefits. The neighborhood is really just a pocket between River North, the West Loop and Noble Square. While River West is less busy than the neighborhoods just mentioned, there are still boutique shops, independent coffee houses and great restaurants in the area.
Plus transportation is super easy with the CTA Blue line and multiple busses running through the neighborhood. In short, this neighborhood is a great option for those working for Google, McDonalds, Boeing or other area employers. If you’re seeking to live in a location convenient to working in the West Loop and downtown Chicago, explore River West.
