River West is a small area within West Town, just east of the Kennedy Expressway and west of the North Branch of the Chicago River, between Division Street and Grand Avenue. The area is bisected by the elevated Union Pacific Railroad tracks. Similarly to its neighbor to the south, the Fulton River District, River West, was also once recognized for only its meatpacking houses, as well as distribution centers. However, it has experienced a cultural revitalization in its recent years. River West contains several large loft buildings, most of which were converted in the mid-1980s for residential use. St. John Cantius church and the Chicago Academy for the Arts, which is located in St. John Cantius’ former school are located in River West. The Chicago Tribune’s Freedom Center is also located in River West. There are also many art galleries inside converted loft spaces. Many performance artists promote and teach their trades in large studios. River West is considered a less expensive option to River North, while still offering plenty of new office and residential loft conversions, as well as many renovated two and three flats, newly constructed townhomes, and brand new loft communities.
