About the Area

The South Loop is a growing community of mixed generations with many young professionals and families producing lots of foot traffic. There is easy access to public transportation. Our hospital is just 10 blocks from the center of downtown Chicago, its great restaurants, shopping districts, theater district, museums and much more. Located near Printer’s Row, the neighborhood is thriving again and continues to expand southward. It was just announced that the State of Illinois, the University of Illinois, and Northwestern University plan to develop a new technology hub of mixed residential, business and entertainment features just two blocks away. The University of Illinois plans to have a campus there. It is deemed to be “the City’s 78 th neighborhood”. Grant Park and its many fests, 5K’s, marathons and Lollapalooza is just two blocks east, and just 2 more blocks east is Lake Michigan. We feel the South Loop is much more neighborly due to buildings having parking areas for their residents, many have outdoor patios, and several have dog runs included in their complexes.
