About South Loop Condos For Sale

South Loop has come a long way in the past decade. Once upon a time, the area was was home to industry rather than individuals and those industrial roots show throughout many of the current residential buildings. Former warehouses and factories have been converted into cool lofts that juxtapose the exposed brick with wide-open views of Chicago and through the use of natural materials like raw wood.

For those that prefer shiny and sparkly, there's still a lot of choice among the South Loop condos for sale. Property developers have been steadily building new condos, lofts and even town homes to help cater for the thousands of newcomers to the South Loop real estate market. These newly developed properties are known to include hotel-level service and amenities with spa-like indoor pools, chef-driven restaurants and multi-level sky bars becoming increasingly common.

With the average condo selling for between $400,000 and $500,000, South Loop real estate has remained relatively affordable. For that price, you can expect a sizeable three-bedroom, two-bathroom unit in a new-build complex. Some of the standard features for this price range include floor-to-ceiling windows, open floor plans, and private balconies with views of the historic buildings and low-lying surroundings. However, for just a little bit more, you could be living in a penthouse duplex in one of South Loop's historic buildings and enjoying a glass of wine on your private rooftop patio that looks out to the Chicago skyline!
