Enjoy the tranquility of tree-lined streets while being minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the Chicago Loop.
This historical neighborhood in Chicago’s South Loop is aptly named. Decades ago, printing businesses both large and small lined the streets of Printers Row. Beginning in the 1970s, many of these buildings were repurposed as residential lofts, though the most iconic buildings remain as part of the Printing House Row District, a national historic landmark that overlaps with the neighborhood.
Printers Row is a truly walkable location. Behind the many historic facades, you’ll find well-established bookstores that stock everything from new releases to literary classics; popular restaurants that serve their devoted clientele along Clark and Dearborn streets; and, prominent high education institutions that include Roosevelt University, Robert Morris University, and Columbia College, UIC John Marshall Law School, and DePaul University’s Loop Campus.
Printers Row is so close to downtown Chicago transportation options abound. Nearly every CTA train line is steps away: The Red Line Harrison stop is just east of the neighborhood, the Blue Line LaSalle stop is just north, and just a short distance away, the Brown, Pink, Orange, Green and Purple lines converge at the Library/Van Buren stop.
LaSalle Street becomes the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290) immediately to the west. Reach Chicago’s west side and suburbs in minutes. Exit to the Dan Ryan Expressway (I-90) for destinations to the north and south. To reach the southwest suburbs, head south on the Dan Ryan to the Stevenson Expressway (I-55).
