River West

Welcome to River West

 
River West is an urban Cinderella story. The once-industrial area has been rediscovered and transformed seemingly overnight into a growing neighborhood with its own identity.

Factories and warehouses are now home to spacious residential lofts, apartments and condos. Meanwhile, trendy high-rises with modern amenities continue to go up to meet increasing demand.

Bordered by the Kennedy Expressway to the west and the Chicago River to the east, residents love the area’s convenience and its urban aesthetic. River West’s location also makes for stunning views of downtown and quick commutes to The Loop, suburbs and both airports via car, bus or the CTA Blue Line.

In addition to new residents, the area has welcomed galleries, restaurants and bars serving up cocktails, bites and nightlife.
