Technically bounded by the elevated (“el”) tracks between Wells on the west, and Wabash on the east, Van Buren on the south and Lake Street on the north, this is the bustling commercial and business heart of Chicago. Increasing numbers of apartments are being developed around the fringes of the loop. Printers’ Row, which extends south of Congress along Dearborn, may have started the trend in the early 1980s with its rehabbed vintage apartments and lofts. More rental apartments will be available in the next couple of years at the north end of the loop along the river. If you like a bustling urban center, this is it.

City of Chicago Vehicle Stickers
All Chicago residents driving, parking, leasing and/or owning a vehicle for which they are responsible in the City of Chicago are subject to the Chicago Wheel Tax and must purchase a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker. This includes Chicago residents that maintain their registration outside of the City of Chicago, but use the vehicle in the City. We want motorists to avoid costly tickets: You must purchase a Chicago Vehicle Sticker within 30 days of residing in the City or acquiring a new vehicle to avoid late fees and fines.

Residential Parking Permits
Chicago’s Residential Parking Permit program is designed to restrict parking on designated residential streets during specified hours, except for the residents of that street, guests of the residents or those who provide a service to the residents. This program helps to ensure that residents of densely populated areas have reasonable access to parking near their residences. Cars parked in violation of this ordinance are ticketed.
The City of Chicago does not mess around. The city has a dillignet parking patrol staff that will ticket you if you are in a spot where a permit you don’t have is required. All spots that require permits are marked with white street signs. Please look out for them!
For more information, contact the city clerk at 312-744-6861 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We also recommend that you ask your Real Estate Agent, Leasing Agent, or Land Lord about parking permit requirements in your area.
