With the emergence of Chicago’s hottest new dining scene and so many real estate development projects happening over the past decade, the West Loop is among the most sought after Chicago neighborhoods for home buyers and renters searching for a new place to call home. Trendy loft spaces, modern new construction condos, and even some desirable and spacious townhomes scattered around the area define the West Loop real estate landscape, but it’s the brand new park spaces, chic new restaurants lining Randolph Street, and the recently added big-box retailers and grocery stores that now make the West Loop a complete downtown Chicago neighborhood.
As mentioned, home buyers and renters in Chicago have plenty of housing options in the West Loop, but it’s the classic West Loop loft buildings that continue to be in a high-demand, regardless of market conditions. While an abundance of redeveloped West Loop loft buildings are located all throughout the West Loop neighborhood, getting a jump on one for sale or rent has proven to be a bit more difficult as Chicago’s real estate market continues to improve and gain momentum. All too often, buyers specifically wanting a West Loop loft will take a little extra time to contemplate their final decision and even that extra day or two can sometimes mean the difference between securing your dream loft for sale and losing it to another buyer.
