This is really bad. SCB should not be designing such a sensitive addition.

Ugly ugly ugly.


Please let this not happen.

At this point I'd be happy with them just leaving the station house alone. And remove that terrible 90's letter signage while they're at it.

Why is this glass box the only option?

From what I was lead to belive the foundation could take more stone mass than this glass box.

Is this just a cheap out, only profit drive vs what would really the site deserves

This is one rare example of me wishing to reject this

Design


Poorly placed and almost impossible to replace once it’s up

Why is this building not designated as a historical building


I understand change can be difficult

But ‘‘tis is on the order of the ufo planted on soldier field

That one is also impossible to replace and fix and we are stuck with that ufo for 50 decades at least


If it was a true stadium like the dallas cowboys have

I would have no problem with a new retractable down town stadium and leave solder field as it was and could be used for any many other uses, the World Cup, to music fests, to anything outside in reality


If Chicago has what Dallas had we would have had the 2016 olympics


‘‘Tis is more myoptic than the “ better rate field “ that was the old Sox park

Union Station was designated a Chicago landmark in 2002.

Ugh, even uglier up close.

Getting a real serious 70's vibe from this... 2001 S Michigan comes to mind...

Had a hunch this design would be a train wreck

Nope. Just nope. Looks awkward. I'm all going to modern on top and in fact, encourage it but this will not do.

Mister Uptempo Jun 26, 2018 2:36 AM

Sad to think that Detroit is going to have Michigan Central Station restored to its former glory, and possibly someday see the return of trains, and we get, well, this.

It looks like someone dropped a cookie cutter West Loop midrise on top of venerable Union Station. I'd imagine that if they could have figured out a way to slip a parking podium up there, they would have.

But wait, I thought midrises would be the saviors of the West Loop
