Good Questions: Industrial Converted Apartments?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

I have lived in Chicago for a little over 2 years now and have lived in a few different neighborhoods, but am ready to make a move for the 3rd time. I want to live in an industrial type converted apartment, do you have any suggestions? (looking for old crate elevators, brick, pipe heating, etc.) I am thinking there might be something in River North or West Loop. Any suggestion for tracking down something out of the ordinary would be extremely helpful.

Thanks,
Matthew

Dear Matthew,

We agree that River North and West Loop would be good places to start your hunt. We'd also suggest South Loop and Pilsen (and we're curious what neighborhoods you've already tried). But really, as with all questions about neighborhoods and apartment hunting, the conversation is much more interesting and fruitful when our city-dwelling, Chicago-loving, neighborhood know-it-alls (in a good way) share their thoughts. Fire away, readers!
