The South Loop neighborhood is perfect for those who want to work, live and play in a downtown environment. It boarders the Loop on the south side so getting downtown can be as simple as hoping in a cab riding a bike ride, taking the green orange or red line L train or grabbing a bus ride down Michigan, State or Clark street.
South Loop is a great example of successful large scale real estate redevelopment. It has come a long way since the 1970s when it was a vice district giving home to brothels, bars, burlesque theatres, arcades, inexpensive residential hotels and one of the skid rows of the era. Now you can find some of the best high rise new construction condo buildings in the city that have great city and lake views.
Directly east of the South Loop is Lake Michigan, the Museum Campus, and Soldier Field. One can bike or walk around along the lake front or the adjacent park land. People travel from all over the world to visit the Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium and Field Museum. The great Chicago Bears play football at Soldier Field. What more can you ask from a neighborhood? How about great restaurants like the Gioco (Italian), Zapatista (Mexican) or the Chicago Firehouse (American).
For those who want to be able to live a very short commute from the loop this is a definite neighborhood to consider when looking to buy a home.
