Loft-style apartments—those which feature details like exposed ductwork, large windows, brick, open concept living, and other industrial charms — can be found all throughout Chicago.
In 1996, the New York Times wrote an entire article devoted to the thriving loft condo conversions in River North. Though many lofts around the city are authentic, meaning they were once a factory or storage space, while others are manufactured from the ground up, catering to people who desire the style, but want new construction.
We found five units, ranging in price from $185,000 to $825,000 all around the city for those who have a love for lofts.
