An explosive overhaul of former factories, wholesale markets, and warehouses transformed the West Loop into a diverse array of reputable eateries, gallery and designer spaces, and converted lofts and condos for singles and families alike.
From a gritty, partially abandoned manufacturing corridor to a burgeoning neighborhood flush with must-visit spots for foodies, eclectic art galleries and shops, and numerous acres of redeveloped park space, West Loop is now one of the hottest downtown areas in which to settle down. There’s a growing market for young families as more businesses (and young professionals) infiltrate the neighborhood. Townhomes and larger condo units can still be hard to come by as many are snapped up almost as quickly as new development blueprints can be drafted! But there are exceptional public and private education options along with a number of parks in the area.
