About The Loop:
The Loop is the local shorthand for Chicago’s central downtown area. This 1 mile square area includes the city’s Financial District, the Theater District, the Art Institute, Millennium Park and Grant Park, the Museum Campus and many other architectural gems. The Loop’s name is inspired by the elevated train lines that loop around the central business district. The city’s grid-like street system builds outward from its “zero point” in the heart of the Loop. All addresses in the city signify the building’s distance from the official starting point at Madison Street and State Street.
The Loop is the place to find cutting edge skyscrapers nestled alongside classic late-19th century architecture. It’s a tableau of Chicago’s colorful past that’s peppered with some of the boldest visions for its future.
Long recognized the city’s hub of commerce, entertainment and culture, the Loop is beginning to define itself as a residential neighborhood distinct from the city’s less vertical living spaces. If you’re searching for an oasis in the sky, then the Loop might be right up your alley.
