Encouraging News from the Near West Side

We received a note from the people at the Fulton River District Association about what's going on on the other side of the Chicago River.  Of course, it's the Association's business to promote the area, but even beyond that it appears that things are moving along nicely just west of the Loop.

Some highlights:
  • The Echelon at K Station is 65% leased.
  • River Point is 66% leased.
  • Construction continues on Metra Market.
  • Alta at K Station plans to start leasing next March.
When we moved to Chicago just six years ago, the Fulton River District wasn't a place we would have considered living.  But an entire neighborhood has sprung up and the area is well on its way to becoming  a vibrant urban district as surface parking lots become condo towers and old warehouses are turned into lofts.
