Considering Living in One of the Luxury Apartments in the West Loop?
Centered on Randolph Street at the western edge of downtown, the West Loop is a fast-growing area supplanting the roots of its gritty industrial life with modernism. Sleek new high-rise buildings and restaurants flourish where once there were factories, wholesale markets and warehouses. The area today contains an interesting blend of converted lofts, mixed-use buildings and residential towers interspersed with open-air produce markets, new restaurants and vibrant nightclubs.
Our West Loop apartment buildings in this desirable, ultra-urban area include:
What Is There to Do Here?
In the old meat-packing district at Randolph Street and Fulton Market, celebrity chefs have established world-renowned restaurants that offer absolutely amazing food. “Restaurant Row,” as it’s known, offers plenty to eat and a nightlife that doesn’t quit. Just a few steps outside our luxury apartments for rent in Chicago West Loop, sample the sushi or get a bite at the late-night diner. Grab an Italian sandwich at family-owned J.P. Graziano Grocery, renowned for the best cold cuts in the city. Savor Midwestern-meets-Mediterranean food at Avec. Experience the ultimate in fine-dining at Ever with its prix-fixe menu of eight to 10 courses. Still hungry? Head to the Chicago French Market near our West Loop rentals for specialty foods at the only year-round, indoor marketplace in Chicago.
Choose a West Loop condo for rent, and you have great options for drinks, too. Try wine tasting, enjoy a champagne salon and then walk to a futuristic cocktail lounge. Blind Barber is one of the coolest clubs around and City Winery is the only fully functioning winery in the city of Chicago. Haymarket Pub & Brewery is one of the best casual brewpubs anywhere, with an award-winning brewmaster and inventive bar food.
Itching for some physical activity? Practice rock climbing at Brooklyn Boulders. Bad Axe Throwing makes a great group activity, and Punch Bowl Social Chicago is a fun hangout, with 30,000 square feet of food, karaoke, bowling alleys and vintage arcade games. There’s also pinball, arcade games and air hockey alongside beer and cocktails at Emporium Fulton Market.
If shopping’s more your scene, you’ll love how the West Loop features chic boutiques, art galleries, antique stores and more. Grab a new novel at Open Books, where all proceeds benefit literacy programs in Chicago. Find high-end menswear at Notre. Field Notes HQ sells pocket notebooks highly on trend.
When you want to experience a little culture, local art showrooms showcase textiles, sculptures, prints and painting. Greektown lies within the West Loop; here you can explore the National Hellenic Museum, old-world bakeries and lively restaurants serving traditional Greek food such as flaming saganaki. Opa!
While virtually on the edge of the Loop, there is breathing room in the West Loop, too. Union Park is more than a playground and green space; it hosts the annual, internationally recognized Pitchfork Music Festival. Come for a day or three and enjoy the best new music as well as craft fairs, food and more.
How Do I Get Around?
Since the West Loop is practically downtown, most residents commute to work by walking or bicycling. Divvy bikes can be rented, too. Taxis are plentiful and easy to flag down. A multitude of CTA rapid transit and bus lines run often along the major north-south and east-west streets of these localized West Loop Chicago apartments. Hop on the green line “L” at Morgan or Clinton, get aboard the blue line at the UIC/Halsted Street station, or take the 20 (Madison) bus route directly east into the heart of the Loop. Along the southern boundary, the Eisenhower Expressway provides regional access to the ‘burbs and beyond.
