Living in South Loop not only opens the doors to ultimate convenience, but it also boasts countless premier living options.

If you’re in the market for luxury and convenience, consider the best new South Loop apartments.

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.
