River West


The small area within West Town east of the Kennedy Expressway and west of the south branch of the Chicago River, between Division Street (1200N) and Grand Avenue (500N) is referred to as River West, complementing the River North area of the Near North Side. The small area is bisected by the elevated Union Pacific railroad tracks. It contains several large loft buildings, most converted in the mid 1980s for residential use; several housing developments; St. John Cantius church; the Chicago Tribune’s Freedom Center printing facility; some nightclubs and restaurants and a few blocks of historic residential areas.
