About The West Loop

Welcome to Chicago’s trendiest neighborhood. Home to tech companies like Google, the West Loop has recently taken over the top spot in Chicago for high-end dining options along it’s Fulton Market restaurant row.

The West Loop offers an easy commute downtown and to the rest of the west side, but given it’s breadth of restaurants, bars, and living options, residents certainly have all they need.

The West Loop features unique lofts and condos given it’s meat-packing history which have seen prices steadily rising as its become more popular in the last decade. Renters can certainly find affordable options and there are still budget-friendly one and two bedroom condos, but you should act fast!
