Loop / Near East Side / Printers Row
The Loop is Chicago’s most postcard-perfect neighborhood, representing an ideal mix of culture, business, and history. From high-rise luxury condos to charming homes in Printer’s Row, every property affords amazing views of the city’s landscape. With its location alongside Lake Michigan, the Loop is a great spot for morning jogs, walks, and bike rides by the water. Families appreciate the wide range of free activities and kid-friendly attractions such as Millenium Park. Art aficionados find a home in the Chicago Cultural Center, the Chicago Art Institute, and the numerous world-class theaters within the Loop.
Office workers appreciate the Loop's convenient location near major corporate buildings. Over breaks, workers enjoy the wide variety of quick-stop lunch spots such as Heaven on Seven, Taza, and the Illinois Institute of Art's Back Stage Bistro. Sometimes workers bypass lunch for shopping in nearby boutiques, malls, and department stores including Filene's Basement and the historic State Street Macy's.
Many of the state's finest universities are located in the downtown Loop, making it a hot spot for young locals. Roosevelt University students can be seen studying in the Harold Washington Library. Local galleries display the work of students from Columbia College and the School of the Art Institute. A number of city colleges offer college credit programs for high school seniors and evening classes to accomodate daytime workers.
With such a wide array of incredible options for living, working, and playing, residents of all ages love the Chicago Loop.
