The West Loop is hotter than it’s ever been, and its popularity doesn’t seem to be waning anytime soon. The area is no longer known just as a food distribution and warehouse district—its become a popular spot for restaurants and new hotels. Its proximity to the Loop and its cultural offerings have attracted high profile companies like Google, SRAM, and now McDonald’s to join in the fold. While it may have once been a gritty community for artists and industrial workers, the area is now hot for young professionals and families. And the housing in the area has reflected this shift. Take for instance this nice two bedroom industrial loft on Washington Boulevard. It’s received a number of updates and a fresh coat of paint and is looking sharp. The listing notes indicate that it’s been completely gutted and rehabbed and includes a parking space. It hits the market asking $432,500.
