South Loop Real Estate Has It All
Authentic industrial South Loop lofts to contemporary high-rise South Loop condos.
Chicago’s South Loop is one of the nation’s fastest growing and most popular neighborhoods. For over ten years the neighborhood has defined “up-and-coming” and “booming”. It continues to morph from an industrial area to a trendy residential area featuring the latest shops and restaurants.
The South Loop has a prize location adjacent to Chicago’s famous museum campus, Grant Park and all the activities along Lake Michigan. The Art Institute, the Shedd Aquarium, the Adler Planetarium. Plus the Field Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry are all steps away. The expansive South Loop spans four zip codes: 60605, 60607, 60608 and 60616.

South Loop Condos And Lofts Buyers Guide
Buying South Loop Lofts
South Loop lofts include a wide selection of vintage lofts. For example, the Printers Row area has many old converted printing and book publishing houses. All of which have been converted to very cool concrete and timber lofts. There are many South Loop loft buildings that you can consider. We’ve been in them all.
Some South Loop lofts are vintage brick and timber and some are concrete. The brick and timber lofts are a good bet because that’s what most people think of when they think of buying an industrial style loft. You know…the über cool artist loft. Take not though…sometimes “cool” comes at a price. Those old wood floors don’t have much insulation so in some cases you end up hearing your neighbors a little more than you’d like. If you prefer peace and quiet, explore the “concrete loft” style. They are normally much quieter. And towering concrete ceilings offer their own stylistic vibe.

Buying a South Loop Condo
Most South Loop condos have been built since the late 1990’s. And the South Loop is among the top three Chicago neighborhoods for high-rise condo living. Buyers choose these high rise condos in many cases for the absolutely stunning views of Lake Michigan and the city of Chicago.
People of all ages and backgrounds can find a condo in the South Loop that suits their lifestyle. There were many high-rises that didn’t quite get built as planned. They fell into limbo for a while during the South Loop realty downturn in the late 2000’s. Now these buildings have recovered fully. That said, there are some South Loop properties to avoid due to poor construction and poor management. So you’ll want to work with an experienced South Loop real estate broker who knows the buildings well.
