Union Station Revamp Enters Its Next Phase

On the eve of a City Council vote on Riverside Investment & Development’s plan for a 50-story office tower near Union Station, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the city’s partners provided a status report on redevelopment of the historic rail terminal.

The next phase of redevelopment will be the addition of a new entrance on Clinton Street that will open the west side of the Amtrak-owned station’s Headhouse for development as a food court and retail space.

“The modernization of historic Union Station and redevelopment of the surrounding neighborhood will generate thousands of jobs and ensure a more vibrant future for the entire city of Chicago,” Emanuel said.

“By working with our partners, we are leveraging talent and resources at our disposal to ensure the station and the West Loop continue to serve as an economic engine for the City of Chicago in the 21st century,” he added.
