Developers plan to build apartments atop Chicago’s Union Station

Chicago’s landmarked Union Station is poised to receive a glassy, seven-story vertical addition as part of an ambitious multiphase redevelopment of the historic train depot and adjacent Amtrak-owned property. The latest version of the plan was revealed Monday night at a public meeting held in the station’s restored Burlington Room. It would add 330 hotel rooms to the structure’s existing top floors plus roughly 400 rental apartments in a doughnut-shaped expansion designed by architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB).
