Why You Should Rent in West Loop

The West Loop is a rapidly developing downtown Chicago neighborhood that sits just south of Grand Avenue and runs along the west side of the Chicago River. It is at an all time high on the heat index both for development and popularity among the city’s luxury minded apartment hunters thanks to the wonderfully diverse group of businesses, restaurants, and residential rentals that call the area home.

In addition to the established companies based in the West Loop, and numerous small, innovative startups , Internet behemoth Google is set to move over 500 employees into their office on 1000 West Fulton Market in the coming year-so it’s no wonder so many of Chicago’s hippest restaurateurs are cashing in on all the action! With delicious favorites such as Girl and the Goat, Belly Q The Publican, Au Cheval, Green Street Smoked Meats, Nellcôte, Cone, Blackbird, Avec Sepia, La Luce and even the elusive Doughnut Vault truck on occasion, it’s difficult not to fall in love with the lifestyle offered in the West Loop based on your taste buds alone.

You won’t go thirsty in the West Loop, either; not with spots like Maude’s Liquor Bar, CH Distillery, Old Fifth, The Aviary, Lone Wolf, and the Haymarket Pub and Brewery ready to serve up whatever you desire! Renters ranging from aspiring chefs to those of us who just prefer to prep our basics at home, will find everything they need on the Near West Side between Jewel, Mariano’s, and Whole Foods stores as well as specialty grocers such as N&G Produce, Peoria Packaging Butcher, Chicago French Market, and Issacson & Stein Fish Company.

If you’re considering an apartment on the Near West Side, there are plenty of luxury rentals to choose from! The K Station Apartments by Canal and Kinzie are a popular choice with their fantastic amenities and desirable location between River North and West Randolph’s Restaurant Row. Depending on your taste and budget, apartments in the area rent from the $1400 price point upwards of $4500.
