It started with Dearborn Park, in 1977. Chicago Bears owner George Halas donated 50 acres of abandoned railroad yards to the city for redevelopment, and the neighborhood apartments and townhomes built along landscaped walkways was an instant success. The rebirth of the South Loop was underway.
Now the community is one of the city’s most vital and attractive. Vacant warehouses have been replaced by high-end lofts and condos, and upscale shops and restaurants are popping up to meet the needs of residents.
But all is not shiny and new in the diverse South Loop community. The expansive vintage spaces of Printer’s Row, once the heart of Chicago’s printing and publishing industry, have been transformed into high-end lofts, and the landmark buildings that contain them now include inviting shops and restaurants. The colorful gate at Cermak and Wentworth has been welcoming visitors to Chinatown since 1975, but the neighborhood has been home to much of Chicago’s Asian population since the early 20th century.
