Find Apartments on Chicago’s Southwest Side

Southwest Side

Apartments for rent on Chicago’s Southwest Side are generally in the cluster of neighborhoods immediately west of the I-90 expressway and south of I-55, with its southern border around Marquette Park. This section of the city formerly housed the Union Stockyards and many workers' apartments close by the sprawling stockyards still remain. The Stockyards' industrial-scale meat packing operation left a legacy in the community that’s comprised of names (most notably the neighborhood known as Back of the Yards), places and personalities that helped define Chicago.

Midway Airport is situated on the Southwest Side. Apartment renters have quick access to downtown Chicago or other parts of the city via the CTA Orange and Green Line trains, or the highways mentioned above.
