The West Loop neighborhood in downtown Chicago is a thriving urban playground that’s now home to some of the coolest and most sought after loft conversions you’ll find anywhere in town. Once a former warehouse and industrial district, many of the West Loop’s original structures actually still stand today, only you’re much more likely to find chic loft offices and condos here now, as opposed to the old factories and storage warehouses that these buildings were originally used for.
Starting in the late 1990s, re-development of the neighborhood started to take over, transforming its rough industrial landscape into a pleasant residential sanctuary that now includes both attractive loft condos and plenty of nearby amenities and attractions for West Loop residents to enjoy.
Today, potential home buyers considering a move to the West Loop will find quite the variety of lofts for sale, ranging from authentic hard loft spaces to comfortable soft loft condos that have a bit more of a finished look and feel. Although newer development of soft lofts seems to be widespread throughout the area, West Loop lofts with exposed brick walls, high timber ceilings, sprawling open layouts, and a unique sense of character and charm still dominate the area’s residential real estate market. Although some of our favorite West Loop loft buildings include 1000 W. Washington, 701 W. Jackson, 331 S. Peoria, and the Heartbreak Lofts at 17 N. Loomis, the list hardly stops there.
