Understanding River West: A History

Once a railway and industrial hub, River West has been rediscovered as a sleek and modern residential area. Residents enjoy a stunning landscape of converted industrial housing and modern new construction. In the heart of the city — top shopping, great restaurants, and entertainment are all within a short walk. Far enough away from downtown for a little peace and quiet, but close enough to explore all the city has to offer. What could be better?

River West homes, despite being so close to the Loop, are relatively quiet and tranquil. The housing stock, as an urban neighborhood, is mostly condominium buildings, converted lofts, and newer townhomes and three-flats. The skyline is dominated by steel and concrete, but a modern innovative design provides needed contrast. Adding to the area’s appeal is that it’s more budget-conscious than other areas around the Loop. Residents can enjoy their neighborhood’s cool and professional charm, walking distance to the Loop, without the premium.
