It is one of the city's 77 designated community areas (Community areas of Chicago). The Loop is home to Chicago's commercial core, City Hall (Chicago City Hall), and the seat of Cook County (Cook County, Illinois). The community area is bounded on the west and north by the Chicago River, on the east by Lake Michigan, and on the south by Roosevelt Road, although the commercial core has expanded into adjacent community areas. As a business center, the Loop hosts the Chicago Board of Trade at the foot of LaSalle Street, and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The Loop is home to Grant Park (Grant Park (Chicago)), the State Street (State Street, Chicago) shopping district, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Other major cultural institutions that call this area home include the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Goodman Theatre, the Joffrey Ballet, the central public Harold Washington Library, and the Chicago Cultural Center.

In what is now the Loop Community Area, on the south bank of the Chicago River, near today's Michigan Avenue Bridge, the U.S. Army erected Fort Dearborn in 1803. It was the first settlement in the area sponsored by the United States. In 1908, Chicago addresses were made uniform by naming the intersection of State Street and Madison Street (Madison Street (Chicago)) in the Loop as the division point for designating addresses, North, South, East or West on the Chicago street grid (Roads and expressways in Chicago).
