CHICAGO | Central Station | 900ft | 83 fl | 790ft | 73 fl | 734ft | 65 fl | 595ft | 54 fl | Pro/Com

Central Station - One of the largest developments in Chicago. The first phase of construction consisted of rows of luxury townhouses with the first tower being finished in 2002. Ten towers have been completed since then.

Once completed this massive community will help define the southern portion of Grant Park as well as extend Chicago's skyline southward.

Named after the former demolished station sitting on its plot.


Area map showing it's proximity to Grant Park, Lake Michigan, and the Museum Campus (after which many towers are named for).


Existing area (I will not post individual buildings mainly for the fact that the first towers are all rather plain by most standards but will be overshadowed by taller and glassier buildings)

Looks great, just only a little bit isolated form the main down town skyline., Anyway that 1 Museum Park looks alright, except it's smaller version "1 Museum park west" looks so much better.

True. I love glassy towers so I like both of them but the smaller version looks better IMO. I like that curve.

Well like I hinted by that comment about the first towers being pretty plain, the design is progressing and with each new project the towers come out better looking. In fact, from early models One Museum Park West would have looked similar to it's big brother style-wise (not shape).

219 m/ 720 ft/ 62 floors

There is prep work going on at the site now and construction should start soon enough.

One Museum Park West, however, will start sales early next year in January I believe.

This is really exciting. It's time Chicago started moving south. I can't wait to see these progress.
