Downtown - The Loop at a Glance

The Windy City!  The Second City! Whatever name you call it, Chicago is the third largest city in the United States - home to the fourth most Fortune 500 corporate headquarters, including Boeing and McDonald's. Here is a breakdown of some of Chicago’s most bustling neighborhoods and what sets them apart.

The Loop - Chicago’s loop is defined as the loop around our “El” - the elevated tracks.

  • West Loop - The West Loop is one of Chicago’s most growing neighborhoods - just on the edge of downtown Chicago, many small businesses have found space in former factories and warehouses.
  • East Loop - The East loop - down Michigan Avenue to Jackson Boulevard - has seen a dramatic revival in the past few years, with new retail growing along State Street and new residential developments. It is an up and coming area for office space as well.
  • Central Loop - This hub consists of Historic La Salle street and is central for the banking and law district. The Central Loop attracts law firms that need to be close to the downtown court house. This area is also the theater district, so it's great for small businesses entertaining their out-of-town clients with shows after work.
  • South Loop & Pilsen - The South Loop is continuously up and coming as a neighborhood in Chicago and has affordable office space for small businesses that won’t break the bank. Much of the South Loop sits on green space on the lakefront and has a great view of Grant Park - which is known as “Chicago’s Front Yard,” and is near Museum Campus - including the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium and Shedd Aquarium.
