The West Loop
The West Loop / Fulton Market District, known for its rich history as Chicago’s original food marketplace, is quickly becoming Chicago’s most desirable neighborhood. The loft warehouse buildings that once housed Chicago’s most successful meat packing companies have become highly desirable for loft office and loft residential conversions. Thanks heavily in part to notable restaurants on Randolph Street, this area has become a destination for foodies across the country. Famous chefs such as Stephanie Izard, Graham Elliot, and Charlie Trotter have established Randolph Street most notably as Restaurant Row.

In addition to these world renowned restaurants, the West Loop has seen significant large scale redevelopment, changing the landscape of the former food manufacturing district. Large office developments such as 1K Fulton are bringing corporate brands such as Google, SRAM, Uber, Walgreens, McDonalds and more to the neighborhood.
