Many people think that “The Loop” defines the circular (loopy) route of the downtown El tracks, but the name originated decades ago as a reference to a different transportation system that no longer exists. Here’s another truth about the Loop: it used to be the area where people came to work and play, but it now boasts a huge residential population, thanks to downtown developers who have put up a lot of high rise condominium buildings and have gutted and rebuilt office buildings to accommodate the ever growing number of folks who want to call the Loop home.

And why not? This area is the heartbeat of everything that is uniquely Chicago. It’s the center of the city’s financial, business, cultural, and governmental districts. And shopping? Few streets in the world can compete with the Magnificent Mile. Nine to five, the Loops bustles with the working world and sightseers and at night it lights the way to sophisticated nightlife and some of the world’s finest dining.

For the Foodie:
Where do you even begin to describe the culinary world open to you in the Loop? The famed Blackbird W. Randolph is a good place to start. And what fun would life be if you didn’t order a beer at Bergoff’s, have a “cheezboiger, cheezeboiger” at Billy Goat Tavern or great old world Russian food at Russian Tea Time? Mike’s Favorites include: Aconto for great Italian, The Gage for delicious gastropub delights, Trattoria No. 10 for Italian and River Roast for fantastic roast beef and chicken.

Browsing Housing Looking for a single family dwelling? Not to be found. But there are many one to three bedroom condominiums that are available in wonderful high rises right on or off Michigan Avenue. Off Michigan, lofty loft space is also available. Parking is definitely a luxury anywhere in the Loop, but your condo will probably include exercise facilities, a storage area for your bike and a convenience store. Living in the Loop is wide open and just a matter of personal preference and the width of your wallet. For your housing exploration, let Mike Kaufman lead the way. He’s an expert at negotiating the streets of Chicago and the terms of a contract.
