Chicago Public Art throughout the city

Everywhere you look in Chicago especially in the Loop area there is beautiful and interesting art work.  Outside along the Lake Michigan lakefront, in parks like Millenium Park, Grant Park and so many more, along streets, buildings inside Libraries, Police stations and other buildings throughout our beautiful city.  Many building, bridges and structures are also a work of art or have works of art incorporated within their structures.

I enjoy art and can’t see and enjoy enough of it.  I have many pictures I have taken and after finding this great guide by The City of Chicago called The City of Chicago Public Art Guide. I am on a journey to see as much of it I can.  It is crazy that I have been only a few hundred feet from so man of these without knowing it.  I also have found a lot that is not here.  So art lovers…if you don’t live here, come visit us and enjoy just another great thing about our city.

Here are a few of my photos of Art in and around The Chicago Loop, The Chicago South Loop, Grant Park and more.

Thinking about moving to this great city?  Contact me and I can help you find a South Loop Condo or loft, Loop condo or loft, Old Town condo or loft, Lincoln Park home or any surrounding area or type home.

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 Museum Park – Armand’s Victory Tap South Loop

My first visit to Chicago Museum Park‘s – Armand’s Victory Tap South Loop.  Now one of my favorite spots.  We sat at the bar as it was a busy time with no reservations but that was just perfect.  We didn’t feel cramped and the staff and ambiance was great.  High ceilings with great architecture and design, seating spread out a little and the lighting was perfect. An upscale place to go with not so upscale pricing.  Everything we had was delicious.  You can stop in for drinks, drinks and appetizers, pizza (a huge selection of appetizer size), salads, home made pastas and dinners.

We tried the Grandma’s meatballs which were just like my moms only the size of baseballs 🙂 , Calamari Calabrese with just enough spice, Casaccio Nova appetizer pizza mmmm,  home made ravioli absolutely perfect and delicious!

I can’t wait to go back….

When you try it and if you don’t live in the South Loop Museum Park area and want to live there, contact me and I can help you find a Museum Park condo or South loop loft etc in the area.

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 walk to the Green River

Just another great day living in the Chicago South Loop Museum Park!  There is always so much to see and do everyday in Chicago.  I took a walk through Grant Park to the Green dyed Chicago River.  It all started in 1962 when some plumbers were dying the water to help with visibility for some repairs.  They used an orange powder with a secret recipe that as soon as it hits the water it turns the water almost a florescent green.  Along the way there was the parade on Congress with almost half the crowd decorated with green something.  The bars were open early in the morning and drinking in the bars, streets and trolly cars was the scene.  An interesting experience with the gorgeous sculptures and architecture of the city with all this intertwined.

 

After my interesting walk it was time for work.  Time to sell a condo in Museum Park!  Contact me if you are or know someone that is thinking about buying or selling in Chicago South Loop Museum Park or Chicago area.

Museum Park-Central Station a 62 degree day in February

Wow!  A 62 degree day in Museum Park-Central Station in the south loop of Chicago.  Everyone from the suburbs and homes and condos in the South Loop are enjoying the day today.  Couldn’t help but take a long walk along the lake in Museum Park Campus and enjoy the lake.  Walked by Burnham harbor, The Field Museum, Soldiers Field, 12 ave beach, Northerly Island, The Adler Planetarium and the new skate park.  Love The South Loop.  I hope you enjoyed the day Chicagoans!

Chicago Museum Park – Central Station Condo building… 1235 S Prairie is one of my favorites!

1235 S Prairie is one of my favorite Chicago Museum Park condo buildings in the South Loop.  It is not the tallest (standing at 36 floors) or the most shiny but has so much to offer.   Just a half block south of Roosevelt road at Grant Park, two blocks west of Michigan Avenue and 2 blocks west of the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Soldiers Field, Burnham Harbor, Northerly Island, Adler Planetarium and Lake Michigan shore.  Bike paths and walking paths along the parks and lake are a few minutes away.  Restaurants for everyone’s taste or try something different every day, there is plenty to choose from.  Music in the Park, Marathon’s, concerts, Summer Dance, Soldier Field events, Skateboard park and on and on…there is an endless list of events for the area within walking distance daily.

It has a contemporary and elegant feel throughout and the units have awesome views of the lake, Museum Park, Navy Pier,Grant Park and the skyline all depending on the floor and orientation of the unit.

There is Little Branch Cafe, a cleaners, workout room, recreation/entertainment room and gorgeous pool in and on the building property.  1235 Prairie also allows a small percentage of rentals in the building for condo owners that have the desire to do so.  The doormen are always professional and friendly.

Most of the units I have seen have upgraded the features in the unit or purchased the upgrades with the unit.  There are hardwood and stone floors, granite and stone counters, many upgraded and custom cabinets and views to die for.  There are one, two and three bedroom units, most with balconies to enjoy the South Loop views. The developer started selling the condos in 1235 S Prairie in 2006 and have been sold out for quite awhile.

If you are thinking of moving to the South Loop or need to move from here, contact me and I would be happy to help you!
