If you are looking for a vibrant neighborhood with unbeatable convenience, South Loop may be the spot for you. Consider taking advantage of this phenomenal location and find a South Loop high-rise to call home.

Living in South Loop

Directly south of the Loop and right along Lake Michigan, this neighborhood offers easy access to the waterfront, popular attractions, and public transportation.

When it comes to narrowing down where to live, South Loop residents have the choice between two distinct areas: Museum Park and Printer’s Row.

While Museum Park is a sprawling lakefront community of brand-new high rise buildings with popular venues and museums, Printer’s Row offers a bit more character featuring former printing plants and publishing houses converted into contemporary lofts and condos.
