Nestled within the Fulton River District in Chicago’s West Loop, Fulton Market comprises Washington Boulevard to Grand Avenue and I/90-94 west to Ogden Avenue. As you stroll through the district, you can feel the vibrant energy and see the neighborhood’s rich history beside you, including the industrial grit and the faded-brick buildings.
A flourishing commercial district requires an efficient commuting method to and from the area. Fulton Market features Chicago's newest CTA Green/Pink Line 'L' station at the intersection of Lake and Morgan. The district is also within walking distance to the Blue Line station at Grand/Milwaukee and the Blue Line station at Racine (UIC). The train service, along with many CTA bus routes, has helped energize the West Loop’s growing commercial and residential prosperity. In addition, multiple Divvy shared bike stations surround the Fulton Market area. 1KFulton offers secure bike storage and a shuttle service to and from Chicago’s Union Station and Ogilvie Transportation Center. For those traveling by car, Fulton Market is just moments away from the I-90/94 and I-290 highways.
In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, Chicago’s famous Union Stock Yards supplied the city’s meatpacking district to the north, of which Fulton Market was a major part. Although no longer a national meat supplier, today Fulton Market is still a source of wholesale food for restaurants and hotels throughout the Chicagoland area.
With a current 3:1 ratio of demand to supply, Fulton Market has become one of Chicago’s hottest up-and-coming neighborhoods. Major corporations, restauranteurs and retailers alike are flocking to the area, including Google, Inc., Uber, Rick Bayless, Soho House, Billy Reid and Kit & Ace. California–based Google now anchors the 1KFulton development, which Sterling Bay recently converted from a windowless cold storage structure into a first-class office and retail destination. Google’s decision to shift its Midwest operations from River North to Fulton Market reflects the evolution of the area into a work/play/live neighborhood.
With so much positive buzz currently surrounding Fulton Market, there has been plenty of media coverage of current developments. A few recent announcements include:
