To answer the questions we’ve received about the District…
The Fulton Market District makes up the northeast area of the near west side of Chicago, just west of the loop. Formerly the Union Stock Yards supplying the city’s meatpacking district, the neighborhood is still a source of wholesale food, but more so, it’s transforming into one of the trendiest neighborhoods of the city. With award winning restaurants, some of the largest technology firms, and many of the hottest residential buildings, Fulton Market is quickly becoming one of Chicago’s most sought-after areas. Whether you walk through the District at 4:00 AM witnessing the remaining meat packing facilities at work, or you’re part of the new meets old chic boutique shops in a former wholesale distribution center, you will witness the energy Chicago is built on.
Many flock to the District for restaurants like Little Goat, Au Cheval, Next, Publican, Grange Hall and Swift & Sons. Others come to celebrate at The Aviary, The Office, and The Tasting Room. And with the redeveloped residential/mixed-use buildings offering panoramic views of the skyline, some Chicagoans call Fulton Market home.
Whether you are commuting from the airport, driving in from the suburbs or biking from a nearby neighborhood, the District makes transportation a non-issue. The District borders the I90/94 and I-290 highways, is walking distance from Chicago’s Metra stations, and houses multiple DIVVY stations. Between the stop for the pin and green ‘el’ station, and the many bus stops, Fulton Market is an easy commute for those relying on Chicago’s CTA public transit.
It’s no surprise corporate giants Google, Uber, McDonald’s, WeWork, and SRAM office in the District. Even with the number of buildings under construction, supply is limited. Storage facilities and warehouses are being converted into class A office buildings offering amenities unique to corporate headquarter offices and tech friendly environments. But the neighborhood is also catering to boutique and mid-size firms chasing the work/play/live lifestyle as well. Two of those properties are 811 W. Fulton Market and 215 N. Peoria. Both buildings are available for occupancy early to mid-2018. With 9-10,000 SF floor plates, users have the unique opportunity to control and customize full floors. Below are pictures taken from the renderings of 215 N. Peoria.
