Welcome to West Loop, an incredibly popular neighborhood on the west bank of the Chicago River.
Welcome to West Loop, an incredibly popular neighborhood on the west bank of the Chicago River. An increasingly popular location for hip artists and relaxed young families, West Loop offers culture and excitement without as much of the bustle of more downtown neighborhoods. West Loop homes for sale often show the area's history as a former warehouse district—you can expect large loft condos with brick walls and concrete beams. If you're looking for lots of space, lots of stuff to do, and a bit of distance from the fast pace of the city center, then West Loop is the ideal place for you to live.
West Loop homes for sale generally come in three varieties. At the low end of the real estate market, you have a number of townhouses running for somewhere between $300,000 and $600,000. These beautiful, classic Chicago homes have lined West Monroe and other nearby streets for decades, making them among the oldest and rarest real estate options in the area. With two bedrooms and a balcony, these homes offer plenty of space, and their interiors have usually seen some renovations to keep them modern.
However, the main real estate attraction in West Loop is the assortment of excellent condos available at a slightly lower price than in many other Chicago neighborhoods. While spacious, open-plan loft condos being the most popular option, West Loop condos include a ton of variety, including some cutting edge developments that you can invest in before they're even built. Finally, the area is home to the sort of luxurious penthouse suite that Chicago is famous for. With options at every price point, West Loop's condos are quite popular with young creatives and professionals who want to live outside of, but not too far from, Downtown Chicago.
Last but not least, West Loop has a handful of detached single-family homes and some elegant old rowhomes, all of which tend to include three bedrooms or more and sell for above $1 million. With homes like these, you can expect spacious living conditions, including two-car garages and basement storage space. These homes feature the finest amenities, and you'll discover that they're perfect for entertaining.
Whether you're young and single or starting a family, life in West Loop happens at a relaxed pace without compromising the quality of its rich culture. The center of this cultural district is Randolph Street, which has a large number of excellent restaurants and bars like Au Cheval and City Winery. It also has the Randolph Street Market, where you can find vintage and unusual items for sale once per month. Finally, for more practical shopping, West Loop has a Whole Foods, a Mariano's, and a Target all within walking distance of your doorstep. And if you need to go further afield, you're on the Blue, Green, and Pink elevated train lines, which can take you anywhere in the city.
If you're planning to start a family in West Loop, or you already have one, you'll be happy to know that there are a number of great parks to hang out at, including Mary Bertelme Park. Your kids will also enjoy access to the Skinner West School District, known for its quality.
