Many Chicagoans who work in the city's financial district and brokerage markets flock to Printers Row and the South Loop location due to its close proximity on foot as well as by "L" or bus. The addition of Millennium Park to the East cemented this location as an area not to be missed when choosing a new place to set down roots.
Printers Row is eclectic, intimate, artsy and full of vintage loft charm. This area was once home to the printing and publishing industry and many of the converted loft buildings here were once old paper and envelope warehouses. One of the city's most famed summer fairs is the Printers Row Book Fair. Live entertainment, food, guest speakers, and stand after stand of books, from newly published to first editions can be found at this weekend event.
Most of the converted buildings in this location do not offer private outdoor space and in many instances parking is monthly at a nearby parking lot. Be forewarned if a deeded parking space is a top need on your list of new home requirements. Be patient and you will find a unit that includes an assigned or deeded parking space.
Printers Row is bound by Congress Parkway on the North, Polk Street on the South, Plymouth Court on the East, and the Chicago River to the West.
