Once strictly an office mecca, the Loop has transformed to become a live-work favorite for Chicagoans. Walkable urbanism is a heavy focus for the Loop, with endless landmarks just outside your doorstep. The Loop’s Millennium Park is home to the Bean, a world famous art installment. Navy Pier, the Theatre District and the Art Institute are all in the neighborhood, so finding something outside of nightlife and restaurant hopping is simple. During the summer, various globally-recognized Chicago events are held in the Loop, including Taste of Chicago, the Chicago Blues Festival and the Air and Water Show. You can enjoy the buzz of the city both at night and during the day without leaving the comfort of home.

Because it is one of the most famous business districts in the world, professionals of all ages love the Loop for unparalleled commute times. All L lines and numerous CTA bus stops are scattered throughout the Loop. Plus, if you have family or friends in the suburbs, Metra trains that travel outside of the city stop in the Loop at Ogilvie Transportation Center and Union Station. For a quick getaway, buses and Amtrak trains are also located at both stations.

A bulk of the Loop’s real estate is reserved to high-end condominiums, but mixed-use developments that offer town homes and row homes are also scattered throughout the area. By combining retail, residential and office space, the Loop locals have a wide array of amenities within their building. Check out new listings for rent and for sale in the Loop below.
