Central Station developer not deterred by soft sales climate

BY SUSAN DIESENHOUSE
September 19, 2007


Fogelson's 73- and 83-story towers are part of the 80-acre Central Station development, whose plans call for 8,000 units...Fogelson this month filed a request asking the city to allow each Grant Park tower to be an extra 100 feet high, not to add square footage or more units but to make the buildings taller and thinner, he explained. Together, the towers will have about 2.2 million square feet.

Story from NewcitySkyline:

Will proposed Grant Park Towers be Central Station’s encore?

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

Chicago, IL, US (NCS) - On Thursday evening, the 2nd floor Congress Lounge at Roosevelt University was overflowing with residents who wanted to learn more about Central Station Development Corporation’s planned towers for the southwest corner of Roosevelt Road and Indiana Avenue.

I asked someone on SSP if they could modify the tower using a different color glass, this is what they came up with...

Are they submerging or putting the metra tracks underground because there not there in the pictures. They really should do that anyway.
