Developer Unveils Plans To Renovate Union Station

Developers unveiled plans for renovating Union Station on Monday that would add hotel and residential units in a seven-story glass and steel structure that would be built on top of the current building. The new structure would have a hollow center, which would allow daylight into the Great Hall below. The space would contain 404 residential units and a 330-room hotel, and developers say would create 6,000 temporary construction and 600 permanent new jobs. Ald. Brendan Reilly (42nd) says what was proposed was better than the initial proposal, but will withhold judgement until after he hears from his constituents. (Crain’s Chicago)
