Two decades ago, the former factories, wholesale markets, and warehouses began a transformation into loft buildings and restaurants. Today the West Loop is Chicago’s fastest growing neighborhood, and as such, has become the new home to major corporate headquarters such as McDonalds and the new Google building. The trendy area is filled with cozy cafes, popular nightspots, and creative-edge galleries. Randolph street is filled with restaurants for every night.
West Loop is bordered on the North by Fulton Street, on the South by Congress Parkway, on the East by Halsted Street, and on the West by Racine Avenue.
