South Loop

Neighborhood Spotlight:
South Loop


As the Loop saturates with an ever-growing quantity of renters, the South Loop area between Congress and I-55 has become an enviable community for renting within a proximity of Chicago’s working hub. Walking to work is painless, and there’s plenty of public transportation in the area. The neighborhood comprises a dynamic mix of histories and attractions. The Motor Row District along South Michigan Avenue and the nearby Prairie Avenue District, once dubbed “Millionaire’s Row” (which housed Chicago’s wealthiest elite during the end of the 19th century), evoke the South Loop’s opulent history. Lofts and condos fill former commercial spaces that operated as publishing companies. Contemporary business professionals and students have transmogrified the South Loop into a combination of urban housing and gritty entertainment, the confluence of music clubs, restaurants, smaller theatres and reputable museums.

Old Town

Neighborhood Spotlight:
Old Town


Modern Old Town alludes to the Victorian era, with its Italianate and Queen Anne architectural style and masonry. But, not too long ago, the area was home to multiple Native American tribes. These people, from whom Chicago gets its name, add to the rich history of both Old Town and Chi Town. Flash forward more than a hundred years, and a new comedy enterprise joins the neighborhood. The organization is called Second City (celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009), and a bevy of Chicagoans have found success via the improvisational club. From Bill Murray to Tina Fey, Old Town has seen its share of celebrities. In terms of boundaries, the neighborhood is not intimately defined: Some individuals defend that Old Town extends as far as one can hear the bells from St. Michael’s Church. Such a statement reaffirms the importance of such an historic structure – the cathedral is one of only seven buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
