New West and Near West Side Highlighted in Sun Times

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, “urban pioneers searching for a new and upcoming neighborhood to settle might want to consider Tri-Taylor West on the Near West Side. The emerging neighborhood of modest Italianate brick row houses and small, single-family homes, worker cottages and modest two-flats is bounded roughly by I-290, Western, Ogden and Kedzie.”

The community is seeing above-average growth because of the proximity it has to the Illinois Medical District, which provides a painless commute.

“The Tri-Taylor West neighborhood is a hidden jewel,” said Nita Snider, a real estate agent with New West Realty, a firm specializing in properties on the Near West Side and other underserved communities. “The Illinois Medical Center District is the largest in the world. About 50,000 people come here every day to serve or be served. So, we’re seeing a lot of workers buying in the area.”

5 C’s For Living In Chicago’s Near South Side

It is hard to pinpoint just one thing when the area is filled with galleries, one-of-a-kind restaurants and bars, and all within proximity to the attractions that have given Chicago such a great reputation in the United States. Here are 5 areas of interest that make the Near South Side such a wonderful place to settle broken down:

Culture: South Loop residents will never lack for something to do thanks to new bars, lounges, and galleries opening on a regular basis, along with other special events. During the day, Union Square Park is a refreshing green oasis with swimming facilities, baseball diamonds, and basketball and volleyball courts – and the park has also played host to the Pitchfork Music Festival.

Cuisine: As home to some of Chicago’s most popular and nationally renowned chefs, the South Loop is known for its culinary scene – residents definitely dine in style. On the other hand, the neighborhood is also full of corner pubs and authentic ethnic eateries that offer few frills but plenty of delicious dining options.

Convenience: Located close enough to the Loop to make commuting a breeze, the South Loop’s central location makes it a great choice for Chicago living.

Construction: The South Loop is probably best known for its converted and renovated warehouses – spacious lofts and contemporary condos occupy these former industrial spaces, resulting in unique floorplans with interesting design features. The area also features new construction with modern condo developments built by some of Chicago’s most prestigious firms.

Creativity: The area’s inspiring mix of art galleries, boutiques, and contemporary restaurants makes the South Loop a haven for artists, designers, and other creative types.
