On Living In The West Loop

These days, living in the West Loop means living in a beehive of activity and buzz. As we’ve already said, the West Loop is an urban warehouse district that has in recent years become one of Chicago’s hottest neighborhoods.

Foodies flock to the West Loop. Home to many of Chicago’s best restaurants.

Contributing to the neighborhood’s success are factors like world-class restaurants, green space, premier employers, easy transportation, great schools, vibrant art scene and all around walkability. If fact, the West Loop is one of the best walkable Chicago neighborhoods.

Let’s explore each of these factors in a bit more detail.

World-Class Restaurants

Foodies love the West Loop. And for good reason! Over the years the area has been host to some of Chicago’s best new restaurants. Initially this was because rents were low and upstart Chefs could afford to actually open a restaurant in one of the old warehouse spaces here, now rents of these spaces are higher but the trendy restaurants somehow keep opening. Here are some of the notable West Loop Restaurants.

Open Green Space

The neighborhood also has plenty of parks for kids and dogs. The largest park in the West Loop is Skinner Park. Situated in the west part of the neighborhood, here you’ll find tennis courts, baseball fields and plenty of wide-open spaces to get outside and enjoy Chicago.

In the east section of the neighborhood is Mary Bartelme Park. It’s the newest West Loop park and offers a dedicated children’s playground, a great lawn and a fenced dog park where dogs can run off-leash. Explore Mary Bartelme Park.

Premier Employers

In addition to the many start-ups, major employers in the West Loop or nearby include Google, McDonalds, Twitter, Boeing and Pepsi. Here are some quick links to current real estate for sale and for rent near these key West Loop employers.

Great Transportation Options

Commuters like the neighborhood because Chicago’s two major train stations, Union Station and Ogilvie, are very close by for easy Metra access. As are the multiple CTA train stations (Blue line, Green line and Pink lines). This makes taking a trip to O’Hare or Midway super convenient. If you’re needing to drive north, south or west to work there are easy on / off ramps to I-290 and I90/94. Here are some tips for getting around Chicago. And below you’ll find condos, lofts and apartments for sale and for rent near the major transportation hubs in the West Loop.

Highly Ranked Schools

The two public schools in the West Loop are Whitney M. Young Magnet High School and the Mark T. Skinner Elementary School. Both are very highly ranked. Other neighborhood schools include The Gardner School of Chicago, Montessori Academy and Saint Patrick School.

Of course many families want to live within walking distance to their children’s school. So here we’ve made it super easy to find West Loop real estate listings near neighborhood schools. When we say near we mean within a 2 or 3 block radius of each school. And you have the ability to adjust the map to meet your needs. Here are the latest listings for sale and for rent near West Loop schools.

Vibrant Art Scene

Chicago’s West Loop is home to more art galleries than most other neighborhoods. Since the Best Chicago Properties office is located in the West Loop we’ve enjoyed supporting the neighborhood art scene with our own art events. And, while the West Loop has plenty for art lovers, as you by now know, there’s really something here for everyone.

Areas Within The West Loop

The West Loop includes zip codes 60607 And 60661. And there are quite a few distinctive corners of the West Loop. Below we discuss three of our favorites; Fulton Market, Jackson Boulevard and Greektown.

Fulton Market

Fulton Market is without a doubt Chicago’s hottest neighborhood.

Fulton Market District

Situated along the north side of the West Loop is Fulton Market. It is the oldest market district in Chicago and features historic buildings where wholesale produce and meat packing outlets still operate today. But these days most of the old buildings have been renovated for re-use. Many excellent restaurants and hotels have joined the urban mix.

While there are a few warehouses still in use, now there’s Google’s midwest headquarters and a bevy of trendy new restaurants, coffee shops and art galleries. And of course there are contemporary condos and industrial loft spaces. Plus, on any given evening on Randolph Street you’ll see diners dressed for an evening out arriving in style. Here is where Chicago (plus nearly every visitor to Chicago!) comes to dine. Learn more about Fulton Market.

Jackson Boulevard District

An often overlooked area of the West Loop is the Jackson Boulevard District. Sitting quietly in the south-west corner of the neighborhood, the area is all that remains of an important 19th Century residential district. The houses, as well as the Church of the Epiphany were built in the Italianate, Queen Anne, Second Empire, and Romanesque Revival styles. The Chicago Architecture Foundation occasionally offers walking tours of the Jackson Boulevard Historic District.

Greektown

Located just west of Downtown Chicago on the east side of Chicago’s West Loop, Greektown is a dining and nightlife district. For years this area has been a popular destination for tourists as well as Chicagoans. Here you’ll find a collection of Greek establishments including restaurants, bakeries and cafes. But it’s more than just gyros and flaming cheese …Opa! Chicago’s Greektown also has contemporary condos and lofts, a Starbucks, a Walgreens, The National Hellenic Museum and the ever popular festival A Taste of Greece.
