Neighborhood: Chi - Loop, The Transportation Building
Terrific opportunity to live in The Transportation Building in the heart of Printer's Row, the famed historic district just south of the Loop & an easy walk or roll to Grant and Millennium Parks, the terrific downtown museums, the Loop college campuses & all the great shopping and restaurants. Designer loft + den space with 5 big windows for great East, North and South views of the City & Lake. All CTA lines are within 2 blocks of the building & the entrance to the expressways is off Ida B Wells Drive, just a block north. You can't beat the location for urban convenience, yet this block of Dearborn has its own private neighborhood groove. There are restaurants, taverns, a wonderful wine shop, book store, beauty parlors, nail salons, barber shops, coffee shops, convenience stores and dry cleaners right on Dearborn. The Harold Washington Library is a block away. Easy access to big stores like Target, Jewel, Trader Joes and Whole Foods. The Saturday Farmer's Market in the Printer's Row Park next door has exploded with vendors selling everything from local honey to kombucha as well as cheeses from Wisconsin and every manner of bakery items. Just a couple of blocks west is the recently opened Riverwalk for recreation and contemplation. It's the perfect Chicago location. The floors in the main spaces are maple. Bedroom is carpeted. Parking lots & garages are all around. Who needs a full time car if you can walk or take public transportation to work, to shop & to have fun in the city? The amazing Dearborn protected bike path is right out front and the Harrison bike path to the Rush/U of I Medical District is at the corner. Express buses to Hyde Park and the University of Chicago are at the next corner. High speed internet & TIVO included. Charming doormen, on-site management, restaurants in building & even a 7 Eleven for late night runs.
