The West Loop has been hot over the past several years, due mainly to its central location, and the Fulton Market district, which is located just northwest of the Loop, provides an ideal place to buy if you’d like to be near downtown. The area is close to major commuter train stations, as well as downtown offices, shopping, and nightlife. The seven-story building offers 75 units, with a choice of one or two bedrooms. Deeded parking is available, thanks to an attached, heated garage. Pet owners should rejoice, both cats and dogs are allowed in the building. Prices start at $199,000 and go as high as $1,800,000.
This formerly industrial area of town is fast becoming revitalized, and while 657 Fulton is centrally located, it’s also far enough from the beaten path that it offers some solitude, unlike more-crowded areas of the West Loop. Downtown office workers will like being close to the office, and reverse-commuters will appreciate the easy access to train stations and major highways.
The nightlife in this area is an especially unique mix of boutiques, art galleries, kitschy bars, and night clubs. Serious foodies might head over to nearby Greektown to sample authentic cuisine.
