Geolofts is located just over 4 miles from the downtown, straddling the neighborhoods of Bridgeport and McKinley Park.
An easy walk from those neighborhoods, it is less than a block from CTA bus stops at 35th & Iron St and 37th & Ashland.
Both the Red Line (35th St/US Cellular Field) and the Orange Line (Ashland and Halsted/Archer Stations) are nearly equidistant at about one and a half miles.
By car, Ashland Ave is only a few blocks east and provides quick access to the Stevenson (1/2 mile), the Eisenhower (3.5 miles), the Kennedy (6 miles). To the north, Archer Ave provides the shortest route to the loop via Halsted, Canal, or State St. Driving east, 35th St provides the easiest way to the Dan Ryan and Lake Shore Drive.
There are plenty of parking spaces less than a block, from Geolofts, that are open to the public. Currently, there are no meters or zone permits required.
