South Loop Revolution

The South Loop was one of Chicago’s first residential districts, which recent redevelopment has again transformed into a residential neighborhood. Working-class immigrants, primarily Irish, initially settled south of the young city near the river while the well-to-do built houses along Michigan and Wabash Avenues

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.
