ChicagoDowntown / Loop

Views, high and low, from the South Loop

by Joe Zekas on 8/23/13

The South Loop has a different perspective on Chicago’s skyline, and it’s often a great one.

We begin with the views from a 41st floor penthouse at The Columbian. Its location at 1160 S Michigan Ave affords unbroken views of Grant and Millennium Parks, Navy Pier and the Museum Campus.

While we’re on the subject of penthouse views, check out the 360-degree ones from Astoria Tower‘s penthouse level, shot on a brilliantly sunny and very windy day.

Lower-floor balconies at Astoria Tower offer great views of the Loop.

Yet another penthouse-level view, this from Burnham Pointe, 730 S Clark St.

Several dozen floors lower we stood on the roof at Motor Row Lofts with developer Paul Zucker, looking north and east to the skyline views and south to some of the water towers that have been preserved atop older loft buildings in the area.

Sticking close to ground level, here’s a big-sky vista of Chicago’s past, present and future from the Lofts at Roosevelt Collection, 150 W Roosevelt Rd.

Views east and west from Park Michigan apartments, 1212 S Michigan Ave.

Here are some panoramas from a visit 3 years ago to AMLI 900, 900 S Clark St.

You’ll find many more Chicago vistas in YoChicago’s aerial and panorama albums at Flickr, in our videos at YouTube, and in earlier posts.
