It's 2014, and the Chicago loft market continues to lofty heights (pardon the pun). Lofts often combine the best of urban living with the nightlife and excitement that makes living in Chicago worth it. What's the difference between a loft and a condo, you ask? Technically speaking a loft is often in a converted industrial building with open space, high ceilings and an atmosphere that this was space was once used for something besides living. Many artists, young families, and other hipsters prefer loft living, but then again if you are a person who likes the unique, a loft for sale can be your dream.
