Also, are there semi-official boundaries for these?

West Loop starts at the river and goes all the way west to Ashland.

Not sure but I think the northern boundaries are Grand and the southern boundary is the 290

Once the United Center area becomes gentrified, I bet they will extend the boundaries to Western. Yes, the southern boundary is 290.

I don't think so. Most people don't include anything past Morgan in the west loop.

I understand that some of the development drops off a little once west of Morgan on some streets, but I find it hard to believe that people would consider Beer Bistro, City Winery, and some of the other more known places on Madison and Randolph as located somewhere other than West Loop. I'd consider the western border to stretch to Ogden for streets as far north such as Madison and Randolph.

What I'd consider the boundaries of the West Loop: N - Metra tracks; S - The Eisenhower; E - Chicago River; W - At the very least, Ashland Ave. But with gentrification, you could make an argument now for Damen and in the future, perhaps even Western.

South Loop:
N - Congress Parkway; S - The Stevenson; E - Lake Michigan; W - Chicago River (north of 18th St) & the Red Line tracks (south of 18th st)

But, of course, it's all subjective and changing all the time.

I think it'll be a while, before people consider Madison and Western to be the West Loop. To me, I still define the West Loop only going as far west as Ashland Ave. I know there is now a Pete's grocery store and a new shopping center at Madison and Western, but that area still seems a little sleepy to me.

For the South Loop, I only consider it that going south to Cermak.
