What’s Best About Capitol Hill Lofts?
“Capitol Hill Lofts offers true loft living in close proximity to Chicago’s Loop and Financial District.”
Authentic loft features
Built in 1918, Capitol Hill Lofts originally served as home base for a variety of small manufacturing firms and a few local restaurants as well. Then in 2000, the building was converted to residential loft condominiums.
Today the building houses 90 one-and-two-bedroom open floor-plan loft condos ranging in size from 750 to about 1,300 sq. ft. These authentic Chicago lofts offer all the highly sought-after loft features. For example, exposed brick, timber beams and high ceilings.
In addition, there are several handy shops in the commercial spaces at street level. For instance, a dry cleaner, hair salon and a 7-Eleven convenience store.
Plus, more features that make for comfortable city living. For instance, private balconies with plenty of room for entertaining and in-unit washer and dryer connections.
The building is also pet-friendly and offers lifestyle amenities like an exercise room, bike room, on-site storage and both inside and outside parking. And while there isn’t door personnel, the building has a 24-hour security camera in the lobby.
Convenient West Loop location
Located at at 625 W Jackson Blvd, Capitol Hill Lofts is one of several classic vintage Chicago loft buildings in the Jackson Blvd Loft District. The location offers easy commuting, plenty of nearby restaurants, shopping, parks and schools.
Let’s take a deeper look at each…
First, the location is ideal for those who want to walk to work in the Loop / financial district. Here you’ll be between Downtown Chicago’s busy Union Station and the West Loop’s popular Greektown restaurant district along Halsted.
Regardless of how you commute, from here its a breeze. For instance, if you commute by car there’s quick access to 90/94 and 290. Or, if you prefer public transportation, here you’ll be just a block from the CTA Blue Line and two blocks from Union Station.
Excellent dining options
Second, live here and enjoy easy access to some of Chicago’s most well-regarded restaurants over on “Restaurant Row” along Randolph Street. Not to mention all that’s on offer in the Fulton Market District and Greektown.
Third, from here shopping is easy. For example, H-mart is a block away and Mariano’s, Whole Foods and Walgreen’s are all just four blocks away.
Fourth, there are several great schools nearby. For instance, Old St. Patrick’s Catholic School (preschool – 3rd Grade) is a block away. Plus, the building sits within the popular Skinner West School District (K-8). In addition, UIC and several higher education institutions are also nearby.
Fifth, when you feel the need to plant your bare feet in some green grass, hang out on the lawn at Heritage Green Park – it’s just a block to the north. And for a more substantial park experience, six blocks west is Mary Bartelme Park which has a larger lawn area, a kids playground and a dedicated fenced dog play area.
