Chicago South Loop area – Chicago Athletic Association Club/Hotel

I had the honor of going for a tour with the Chicago Architecture foundation of the Chicago Athletic Association Club/Hotel.  The architecture and beauty is breathtaking!  Spanning the outside, front entrance (the hotel check-in is on the second floor), halls, bars, rooms, party rooms and terrace of the Chicago Athletic Association everywhere you look is more beautiful!

This is a historic landmark in Chicago with so much beauty and history.  Distinguished members have enjoyed the Club for over a hundred years but now it is open to the public to enjoy.  have visited the hotel a few times with friends for dinner and drinks and to enjoy Cindy’s Rooftop view and ambiance.  Cindy’s was named after their mother Cindy and the Andy Warhol of Cindy is an original hanging in the separate party room with the fireplace.

The hotel was renovated by the Pritzker’s over many years, they preserved everything they could with no expenses spared.  The architecture and details throughout are magnificent. The hotel had a pool that famous members enjoyed which they remodeled into another entertainment room.  One of the bars/game room has pool tables, games, bocce ball with one of the original logos for the Chicago Athletic Association which was purchased and is now the Chicago Cubs logo.Most of the logos throughout the club have been revised.  The Milk room bar is what you would think, a quiet little bar tucked away that used to sell milk ( 🙂  ).  The Cherry Circle room is another tucked away bar which has been restored to it’s original look and feel.  The library is open to the public to study, read or just relax in the beauty of it all, I have attached some photos which do not give it justice.

If you are living in Chicago or thinking about moving to Chicago or just visiting, put The Chicago Athletic Association on your places to visit, admire, dine at, have cocktails or stay at.

Chicago South Loop Museum Park Real Estate market stats Jan/Feb 2017

Chicago South Loop Museum Park Real Estate market stats for January and February of 2017 are showing a slight slow down of properties being sold.  Prices coming down slightly for South Loop lofts and condos and a little more inventory then in the past months.  Interest rates crept up a little and I would think that had something to do with less buyers in the South Loop area.  The stats are showing that we are almost even with last years figures.  It is hard to predict what will happen this year.  Experts have said we will see increased prices by the end of the year but there are so many factors that go into our stats that we cannot control or predict.

Chicago – South Loop Museum Park

I am looking forward to spring/summer in Chicago’s South Loop Museum Park area.  There is so much to do and see.  Within walking distance of the South Loop Museum Campus, the lakefront, Millenium Park, Grant Park, Soldier Field,  McCormick Place, the South Loop is experiencing a rush of young professionals and families that want to work and enjoy their free time close to home. A visit to the Field Museum; dance lessons and dancing under the stars or a free concert at Millennium Park; walking/running/biking along the lake shore past museums, harbors and beaches, or strolling down Michigan Avenue past the shops. restaurants and more.  Not to mention all the beautiful architecture of Chicago .   I love living here, my favorite Chicago sites are so close.   Builders are trying to keep up with the rush of people trying to move to the South Loop by building new condos and apartments.   The South Loop area is growing quickly but still has the neighborhood quiet feeling.  Walking the streets to enjoy the homes, parks, condos and businesses is a peaceful experience.  I think the lure of the Chicago South Loop Museum Park area will continue to grow as time goes on.

Some of my favorite photos from my strolls through the neighborhood.

Chicago South Loop Museum Park view from sailing on Lake Michigan.

I had the pleasure of spending an evening sailing from Burnham harbor in the South Loop Museum Park with some friends on Lake Michigan north past navy pier and south to Hyde Park.  The views were spectacular!

Chicago South Loop Museum Park Housing market stats

Chicago South Loop – Museum Park housing market has been improving overall over the last year.  The key is pricing, many sellers are realistic about where they should be priced and their South loop loft and condos are selling quickly.  Some are overpriced and just sit on the market.  Inventory of South Loop condos and lofts is low so you can see that the prices are increasing.  Market time is starting to creep up in South Loop’s Central Station though as many other areas across the country.

Chicago South Loop Museum Park – Pepsi Tall Ships…oops! I forgot to post pictures :)

Chicago South Loop Museum Park area has so many things to do.  I walked over to the arrival of the Pepsi Tall Ships at Navy Pier and oh what a sight!  The crowds were less than the weekend and I felt like I was one of the few that even knew about the ships coming in and the festivities around it. The Tall Ships festival ran from July 27-31st.  There were ships from all over the world, the farthest I saw was from Spain.

I ran out of space on my phone or I would have captured more.   I also posted only half of the pictures I took.

  Everyday is  a new adventure in the Chicago South Loop / Chicago Loop / Chicago Lake Front!  If you are thinking of moving to or from Chicago contact me and I would be happy to help you.

Chicago South Loop Museum Park condo & Lakefront views

Living in a South Loop Condo in Museum Park has it’s bonuses!  Love the views everyday.  Glessner House in Prairie District, The South Loop Lake Michigan Lakeshore in Museum Campus, South Loop’s Burnham harbor and another view from a 1201 S Prairie Avenue condo.

Investors are even looking at the South Loop as a great investment.  The numbers work in South Loop condo and South Loop loft buildings that allow rentals.  A quieter neighborhood than the bustling Chicago Loop yet close to all that is happening.  Contact me if you are contemplating a move to or from the South Loop Museum Park area, I would love to help you!

Chicago South Loop Museum Park 60605 market

The Chicago South Loop Museum Park housing market zip code 60605 for April is looking better than March in many ways but a little dim as far as the median sales price (only $1000).   Central Station/ South Loop condos, South Loop Chicago lofts and Museum Park town homes are still selling well and my opinion is that the prices will increase at a nice rate this year.  It is all about supply and demand and the supply is shrinking and demand is getting greater at a fast rate in the South Loop zip 60605.

Stats for South Loop zip code 60605

Medium sales price:  $341000 down from March only $1000.

Months supply:  3.0 months vs 3.1 in March.

Properties in 60605 under contract:  860 up from 847 in March.

Closed properties in 60605:  833 up from 809 in March.





If you or anyone you know are looking to sell a property or are looking for property for sale in Chicago, including a South Loop condo, South Loop loft, South Loop town home or single family home in Museum Park, Chicago Loop, South Loop or surrounding areas contact me.  Thank you!
