Located at the southern edge of Grant Park, across from Chicago’s Museum Campus, Museum Park is among the largest sub-developments within the 80-acre Central Station Planned Development. Situated within a former rail yard and warehouse district bordering Chicago’s Museum Campus, Lake Michigan and historic Grant Park, the property had the unique distinction of being the only lakefront land not included in the historic Daniel Burnham Plan. The area provided the unique opportunity to create a new urban infrastructure that responded to the rich historic context of Museum Campus while providing a springboard from which it could transition towards a modern architectural language. The modern residential lakefront community encompasses nearly 3,000 dwelling units, twelve high-rise buildings and multiple townhouse configurations.
