The South Loop
The South Loop has a character all its own. The neighborhood was built around the transportation and printing industries in the 1800s. The rich history is still visible in the surviving architecture which has been refurbished to become an active cornerstone of the community.
There are countless things to do and places to explore. Enjoy being steps from Grant Park, Museum Campus, Lake Michigan and endless shopping and dining for any taste.
A local landmark built in 1885, Dearborn Station was once a main transportation hub for the city. Today, it serves the community as renovated office and entertainment space.
The Wabash Arts Corridor
The Wabash Arts Corridor is a point of pride in the South Loop. Internationally recognized street artists partnered with Columbia College to bring new life to urban spaces by painting large scale installations for the public.
Printers Row is a lively micro-neighborhood in the center of the South Loop. It is home to a strong literary community and the annual Lit Fest, held each summer.
The South Loop attracts a diverse population. It's become a hot spot for the 9-to-5 crowd who love being able to walk to work in the Loop. The neighborhood is also home to students attending the multiple universities in the area. People may come for work or school, but they stay for the culture, art scene and community-feel right in the center of the city.
Small businesses thrive in the South Loop. Printers Row Coffee, a favorite of 777, roasts their own coffee beans in-house. Care and craft are not overlooked in this shop.
