Its project boundaries are the Chicago River on the north and west, Congress Parkway on the south, and generally Michigan Avenue on the east, with a few blocks extending northeast to Columbus Drive in an area north of Millennium Park called Lakeshore East.Plan to visit The Loop during your Chicago vacation using our convenient Chicago trip planner.
Chicago Loop Alliance's members consist of more than 250 businesses, organizations and individuals located within the Loop and Downtown Chicago.
