About Fulton River District

The Fulton River District is home to Chicago's meat packing district and produce warehouses, but it is also one of the fastest growing residential areas in the city. The neighborhood borders the Chicago Loop, making it quick and easy to get downtown. The area still has many functioning warehouses, but little by little, warehouses are being torn down or transformed into innovative condos and lofts.

Getting Around Fulton River District

Around Fulton River District

You really can't go wrong when picking a place to live in the Fulton River District. If you work downtown, the Loop is within walking distance. If you commute to the suburbs, the Kennedy Expressway is nearby, or you can take the Metra train from either Union Station or Ogilvie station, both of which are in the Fulton River District. As the name suggests, the Chicago River runs through the neighborhood, so condos with a river view are available. Condos are the primary living option. Most are new, and the variety of floor plans is impressive.

You will find some great restaurants nestled between the meat and produce warehouses. In fact, the close proximity to food wholesalers ensures that food is fresh. Most restaurants will require a reservation, and the cost of dining is, for the most part, exceptionally high. However, there are a handful of low and mid-priced restaurants and bars to choose from. The Fulton Market is a bit like a daily farmer's market. It does not require a reservation and is an excellent place to shop for farm fresh foods, artisan specialties, and a mix of high-end and low-end foods.

The neighborhood is home to many professionals, who work in the Loop or in other areas of downtown. Although the neighborhood borders downtown, the vibe is much more relaxed, and the few retailers and casual restaurants are places where the owners know their customers by name.

There is plenty to do in the Fulton River District. There are multiple clubs, bars, and restaurants to choose from. You will even find a few galleries and event spaces. The Green Line and Pink Line both serve the neighborhood, and the Blue Line is within walking distance, making it easy to get around the city.

A good portion of the locally owned retailers in the neighborhood are closed on Sunday, but several restaurants are open. Head over to Fulton Market to shop, eat, or simply look around.
