In the 1900’s the area was full of freight and passenger railroad yards at the southern end of the business district. Loft buildings were used for printing and express shipping. However, by the Mid 20th century when the printing and railroad industry declined the area was left vacant.
In the 1980’s the area was revitalized and since then, housing has boomed with historic lofts, high-rise condominiums, and new construction apartments. The neighborhood is well-connected to public transportation, with several CTA bus and train lines serving the area.
The south loop is home to several highly regarded schools, ranging from elementary schools to universities.
