South Loop

The Chicago neighborhood of the South Loop has been steadily increasing in popularity, driven by its proximity to the loop as well as the lakefront and Grant Park. Many loft conversions, luxury new construction buildings, and the new Soldier Field have further broadened the neighborhood’s appeal to visitors and prospective residents alike. Bordered by the lake, Cermak to the south and Canal Street to the west, the South Loop includes the historic rowhouses of Printer’s Row and the Dearborn Park residential development. Like the Near South Side, the South Loop is a major player in the city’s residential and business plans for the next decade.

Columbia College and the School of the Art Institute bring many young artists and students to the South Loop. Chicago’s Museum Campus is the cultural anchor of the neighborhood and attracts an abundance of tourists and culture-seekers to see the world-famous Field Museum & Shedd Aquarium almost every day of the year.

Transportation in the South Loop is a snap, with access to Metra, the El Blue, Red, Green and Orange Lines, and CTA buses on many major streets. The South Loop also has I-90 on its western edge and I-41 along the lakeshore.
