A historic Chicago district, the South Loop encompasses a large region of the south end of the Loop. Borders run with Congress to the North, the Chicago River along the West, Lake Michigan to the East and I-55 to the South. A dynamic mix of old and new, the South Loop holds historic landmark buildings along side brand new gleaming glass and steel hi-rises.
Taking up part of the Loop and the Near South Side, the South Loop is seen as one of Chicago’s first residential districts. With the quickly emerging residential quarters and as new business flourished, railroad tracks ran through the South Loop to carry travelers and freight alike. As Chicago became the nations printing center, lofted commercial buildings began to pop up. As the printing industry quickly changed, the warehouses vacated. However in the recent past developers have rebuilt them into premier lofted condominiums and luxury apartment homes.
Today the South Loop is rich in culture and architecture. The beautiful Museum Camps runs along the east side of the South Loop. Here lies a collection of Chicago’s best museums and cultural centers. From the Adler Planetarium to the Fields Museum and the Shedd Aquarium are just some of the world famous venues that are found here. Recently development has been moving at a rapid pace residents have once again found the luxury of living in an urban oasis with beautiful tree lined streets so close to downtown.
The South Loop is home to many attractions. Besides all of the world class attractions found in Museum Campus, one of Chicago’s best parks is located in the center here. Grant Park is a beautiful green space treasured by many. Grant Park plays host to many of Chicago’s summer festivals including Blues Fest, Taste of Chicago and Lollapalooza. Legendary blues venues and iconic architecture buildings are ready to sooth any history buffs interests.
