Living in the South Loop

Chicago’s South Loop boasts a wealth of cultural attractions, shopping, nightlife, sporting events, and a community rich in diversity.

Along the neighborhood’s eastern boundary lies the Museum Campus, composed of a trio of Chicago’s most beloved cultural establishments, including the Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, and Shedd Aquarium.

To the north of the campus is Grant Park, 319 acres of protected green space. The home of the iconic Buckingham Fountain, and festivals like Lollapalooza, Blues Fest Chicago, and the long-standing Taste of Chicago, the park is a mere hop, skip, and a jump from Coeval.

Just to the south of Museum Campus is Soldier Field, the third smallest NFL stadium in the country, and the home of the Chicago Bears. A once historically preserved landmark, in addition to the regular Bears games during the NFL season, Soldier Field hosts major concert and sporting events

The South Loop is also home to a wide selection of dining and nightlife options. Vice District Brewing Company and Motor Row Brewing both call the community home, as does Buddy Guy’s Legends, one of the city’s most legendary blues clubs. Buddy Guy’s is best known for serving up the well-loved Chicago-style blues and New Orleans-inspired food seven nights a week.

Importantly, the South Loop’s newest treasure is the Roosevelt Collection, a shopping center and movie theater just a half a mile west Coeval. The Collection features go-to stores like The Container Store, H&M, and Ulta. Of course, just next door is Target, a haven for almost all city dwellers.

The neighborhood has its fair share of grocery stores, with Jewel-Osco, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s just a few steps away from Coeval, itself.

Live here, play everywhere

South Loop residents delight in the ease of access to and from the neighborhood. Beyond the neighborhood’s super convenient walkability, there are Red, Green, and Orange line L-stops at Roosevelt Road—which is less than five minutes away from Coeval, as well as Green Line accessibility at Cermak Road.

There are over five busses that run through the South Loop neighborhood, and both Lake Shore Drive, I-55, and I 90-94 run along the neighborhood’s east, south, and west borders, respectively.

Chicagoans know that summertime activities in the city are the best that the U.S has to offer. And, of course, the city’s beautiful body of natural water, Lake Michigan, offers Chicagoans the opportunity to take part in unique boating and beach culture.

Cyclists and runners both delight in lakefront jaunts, and the musically minded can enjoy outdoor shows at Northerly Island, a 119.70-acre peninsula that juts into Lake Michigan. Nature-lovers enjoy Northerly Island’s vast natural landscape, which features walking paths and spectacular views of Chicago’s skyline. Dog-owners can take their pets to the beautiful Fred Anderson dog park, which features tunnel structures, dog-friendly water fountains, and more!
