740 Fulton on Chicago’s Near West Side is located in a growing community composed of numerous distinct neighborhoods.
Fulton River District is a residential and commercial neighborhood bordering the Chicago River, and offering renovated loft buildings as well as recently built condos. The community is the location of the Union and Northwestern railroad stations, the historic Blommer Chocolate Factory as well as the home of The Boeing Company.
West Loop is a growing area attracting a population of urbanites who welcome its many new multi-unit buildings and complexes and its immediacy to downtown. In addition to new construction the neighborhood features a number of rehabbed loft buildings converted into condos and commercial spaces. Amenities in the hood include world-class restaurants, night clubs and an up-and-coming gallery scene. The district is also home to Harpo Studios (Oprah Winfrey Show) and the United Center with its celebrated statue of Michael Jordan and home of the Chicago Bulls and Black Hawks.
University Village is an historic neighborhood that has been revitalized by the nearby University of Illinois at Chicago campus. The newly cosmopolitan area was once the site of Chicago’s famous Maxwell Street market with its memorable “we cheat you fair” motto, and the area in which the music known as Chicago Blues first originated.
Greektown offers a diverse ethnic population in an eclectic neighborhood where high-rise office and apartment complexes co-exist with old-world style and traditions. The heart of the community is Halsted Street which is lined with world-famous restaurants and independently owned shops.
Tri-Taylor is a vivacious, growing triangular shaped neighborhood in close proximity to UIC and Chicago’s celebrated Little Italy. To help preserve the area’s flourishing old-world ambience in which restored 19th century rowhouses and two- and three-flat buildings fuse with new single-family homes and townhouses, the Tri-Taylor Historic District has been granted neighborhood landmark status. The Illinois Medical District, home of four world-class hospitals, is part of the Tri-Taylor community.
