West Loop

Formerly an industrial zone has transformed into Chicago’s most up-and-coming area. You’ll find tons of restaurants, bars, shopping, and galleries. Union Park is home to Chicago's premier summer & fall outdoor music festivals as well as Union Station which is a hub for commuter and long distance train travel. The Blue & Orange transit lines head to the city’s two major airports, O’Hare and Midway, which provides for transit advertising opportunities. The West Loop also has a variety of billboards and wallscapes for brands to reach locals and tourists.

The West Loop is one of the most dynamic areas. It continues to grow with condos, offices, restaurants/bars, & retail. The West Loop is home to corporate HQ’s of companies with Google & McDonald’s being the most high profile. Overall, the West Loop is one of the premier areas of downtown Chicago where consumers live, work, travel, shop, & play.

Wicker Park / Logan Square

In Wicker Park and Logan Square, you’ll find a “hipster” type crowd amongst many unique boutiques and restaurants attracting people from all over Chicago. North Milwaukee Avenue runs through both neighborhoods and is known for its bustling nightlife, dining and entertainment venues, setting the bar for the city's nightlife and bar scene. North Damen Avenue draws hip crowds with quirky shops, minimalist cafes, specialty grocery stores and cool fashion boutiques.

Wicker Park & Logan Square are two neighborhoods located NW of downtown Chicago. Both areas blend artists, hipsters and many tourists because of the trendy lounges, nightlife, hidden gem restaurants, quirky shops, cafés and boutiques. With high pedestrian and vehicular traffic at all times, OOH advertising in these two neighborhoods can’t be missed.
