Then and Now, Jefferson-Jackson

1956–Jefferson Street @ Jackson Boulevard, view north

2019–the same location

In 1956 this area west of the Loop was populated by factories and warehouses.  Land and rents were cheap.  Gritty, not pretty.

Today many of the old industrial buildings have been replaced by high-rises, while others have been converted into offices and loft apartments.  The West Loop has become one of Chicago’s hottest real estate markets.
