Living in the Loop
19 December 2019
1000M is located in the heart of Chicago’s burgeoning South Loop neighborhood. Currently in the midst of a development race, the area is taking shape as a neighborhood that is the prime place to live, work and play. Here are just a few perks you can expect from living in the South Loop.
Waterfront and Park Access
The South Loop is right up against the Lake Michigan shoreline, giving residents access to easy strolling along the sea wall, sweeping skyline views, virtually untouched beaches, the ability to enjoy boating and watersports and more.
1000M is also just across the street from Grant Park, the sprawling green often referred to as “Chicago’s Front Yard.” And only a short walk away, Millennium Park offers even more greenery, public art and programming to be enjoyed.
1000M is part of the Cultural Mile, an endless resource of cultural institutions spanning from museums, art galleries, theaters and more. Included in the impressive list of museums nearby is the trifecta at Museum Campus: The Field Museum, The Adler Planetarium and The Shedd Aquarium. And just down the road is the crown gem of Chicago art museums, the Art Institute of Chicago. You can also find live music every night of the week at Buddy Guy’s Legends, or tour world-renowned street art in the Wabash Arts Corridor.
The Best of Dining and Drinking
The South Loop draws the best and, at times, most adventurous, crowd into its dining scene. On a night out, residents can enjoy choosing from diverse and vibrant options such as fine Spanish dining and tequila at Mercat a la Planxa, the classic steakhouse experience at Remington’s Restaurant and more.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. You can always top the night off at an array of upscale drinking spots, such as Cindys, Moody Tongue Brewery and the Chicago Athletic Association.
Whether you’re looking for a lively night out on the town, or a leisurely day enjoying the best art or scenery that the city has to offer, the South Loop has it all.
