Chicago's West Loop neighborhood is rapidly changing, but as the area's large inventory old industrial buildings are given new life put to new use, the neighborhood has become one of the trendiest areas to work, play and live in Chicago. Developers are rushing in on the area to convert brick buildings into office space and residences, but there have been some concerns about losing touch with the neighborhood's past. While tech companies are moving in and changing the image of the area once dominated by meat and produce distributors, many buildings pay homage to the neighborhood's history as a heavyweight in the food business. For today's edition of House Calls, we visited a unique loft in the former Nabisco plant in the West Loop. While it no longer churns out baked goods, it certainly is a sweet place to be.
