Located at 210 S. Des Plaines Street in the West Loop, “The Edge” lofts and tower is truly unique. Namely because the building features both vintage lofts and high-rise condos. Something rarely seen in the world of West Loop condos and loft buildings. (Note: 565 W Quincy is one other nearby example)

As you might guess, the loft units are in the base of the original building. This five-story portion of the building was originally constructed in 1913 for the Western Newspaper Union.

The condos are in high-rise tower which was constructed on top of the original building. The vintage lofts in the original section are classic “true” Chicago lofts. The condos in the 21 story tower portion offer floor-to-ceiling windows with impressive views over the city.

The Edge has 224 units ranging from 575 sq. ft. studios to 1,500 sq. ft. two bedroom units.

The best aspects of The Edge include a convenient location, sensible amenities and a choice of living styles. Let’s take a look at each.

Convenient location

Located at at 210 South DesPlaines Street, The Edge Lofts and Tower sits between Chicago’s busy Union Station and the Greektown section of the West Loop.

Live here and you’re steps from work in the Loop and all the dining and entertainment options on Randolph & Fulton Market. This location is also ideal for those looking for easy access to transportation options. For example, here you have easy access to all the highways, Union Station/Ogilvie and the CTA Blue Line.

Moreover, live here and shopping is a breeze. For instance, Whole Foods, Mariano’s & H-Mart are all less than a 5 minute walk.

Also, across the street is historic Old St. Patrick’s Catholic Church which was founded in 1846. Plus there’s the quaint Heritage Green Park. A little natural oasis in the city.

Moreover, The Edge is a pet-friendly building. (You will want to ask about the pet policy as there are restrictions as to the number of pets.) And here there’s even a dog run!

The Edge Lofts & Tower offers you a choice of styles

The Edge presents you with good choices right from the start. Namely, here you get to decide between true loft living and high-rise condo living. To help make the right choice, just ask yourself what kind of space makes you happy.

Or choose the high-rise condo portion if the light and Chicago views offered by floor-to-ceiling windows makes your heart sing!
