Chicago's South Loop Seeing Red Hot Condo Sales

Downtown Chicago CondosAn encouraging bit of news was featured today on, and in case you missed it, it looks as if the South Loop condo market is really starting to gain some momentum. Last July, Related Midwest announced it had acquired nearly 500 South Loop condominiums with a plan to renovate and re-market these units as the market slowly starts to improve. Although the development strategy may have seemed risky at the time, it appears as if the move is now starting to really pay off.

According to Crain’s, more than 100 of those South Loop condos have been sold, and it’s only been just several months since the official re-launch. Asking prices for the newly revamped condos were set between the middle $200,000s all the way up to $2 million, and although many units still remain, this is without question a clear sign that Chicago’s condo market is once again strong—and apparently on fire.

Also just installed in Chicago’s South Loop were eighteen artistic glass street light tubes along Congress Parkway’s median, as well as 343 decorative light sculptures that bring this part of downtown to life. With reports claiming these ornate improvements cost tax payers $3.4 million, the lights aren’t coming without a bit of controversy, but it’s hard to argue the creativity and much-needed glamour they’re adding to the neighborhood. So between a thriving condo market and some serious infrastructure improvements, it seems Chicago’s South Loop is back on its way up—after the hit it took from the recent housing crash, we couldn’t be happier.
