South Loop

South Loop. Most of the area south of Congress Parkway between Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, except Chinatown, is referred to as the South Loop. Perceptions of the southern boundary of the neighborhood have changed as development spread south and the name is now used as far south as 26th Street. The neighborhood includes former rail yards that have been redeveloped as new-town-in-town such as Dearborn Park and Central Station. Former warehouses and factory lofts have been converted to residential buildings, while new townhouses and highrises have been developed on vacant or underused land. A major landowner in the South Loop is Columbia College Chicago, that owns 17 buildings. South Loop is zoned to the following Chicago Schools: South Loop School and Phillips Academy High School. Jones College Prep High School, a selective enrollment prep school drawing students from the entire city, is also located in the South Loop. The South Loop was historically home to brothels, bars, burlesque theaters, and arcades. Inexpensive residential hotels on Van Buren and State Street made it one of the city's Skid Rows until the 1970s.
