The origins of 616 W Fulton date back to 1895 when Sears & Roebuck & Co. built its catalog headquarters. At the same time, the Union Stock Yards developed Chicago's meat-packing district. A mixture of fresh produce, meat-packing facilities, and mail-order distribution plants occupied the area.
In the late 1980s, this neighborhood became Chicago's nightclub district. Today's Carnivale restaurant was a club called "Drink." Jefferson Tap was a 5 a.m. establishment called "Elxir," and 616 W Fulton was a nightclub called "China Club."
In the late 1990s, Restauranteurs saw the potential and created "Restaurant Row," now it's Chicago's most sought-after area to dine.
Residential real estate developers took note. in 1997, 616 W Fulton was the first timber warehouse converted to 111 unit condo building called "The China Club Lofts." While other buildings were knocked down and turned into condominiums
Today, Fulton Market River District is an established vibrant neighborhood in Chicago. Similar to New York City's Meat–Packing District -- once dominated by manufacturing facilities, the community has evolved. New tech companies, mixed with iconic international brands, have moved in and combined to make the region the ideal work/live environment.
Adding to the area's allure are the fantastic Eastern views of Chicago's world-famous skyline.

I bought into 616 W Fulton in 2004, and I'm still here. My real estate practice is focused in the West Loop. Over the years, I have become the #1 real estate agent in the West Loop based on the following categories:
Total volume sold.
Total units sold.
This #1 ranking benefits my clients as it gives them current, accurate, and reliable data to help them make sound real estate decisions whether they are buying, selling, or renting.
I have also represented two of Chicago's top developers (Belgravia & Mesirow Financial) and sold two new construction residential buildings in the neighborhood from pre-construction sales to completion. This experience has helped me guide clients interested in investing in new developments throughout the city.
Over the years, I have established relationships with industry-leading real estate attorneys, general contractors, lenders, interior designers, stagers, and inspectors who assist my clients throughout ownership.
