Of most significance to AT readers, however, is the section "Living Large" (p. 22), which details why the Loop is an ideal place to live for many Chicagoans (we bet Devyn, a.k.a. Looper, would have something to say about this!).
Some interesting $$ facts about living downtown:
Average one-bedroom rent, 2007: $1,600
Average condo price, 2007: $427,535
Average condo price, 1997: $185,367
(boundaries: Lake St, Wabash Ave, Wells St, and Van Buren St)
How many AT readers live in the LOOP??
