The Restoration of Chicago's Union Station

  • Glessner House 1800 S. Prairie Avenue Chicago United States (map)

A $22 million project completed in early 2019 returned the Great Hall of Chicago’s Union Station to its 1920s glory as envisioned by architects Graham, Anderson, Probst & White. Major work included the restoration of the 219-foot-long skylight, plaster repair, restored ornamentation, restoration of 24 ceiling chandeliers and two sculptures by artist Henry Hering, and a paint analysis which revealed the original color scheme. The presentation will be given by Leonard Koroski, FAIA, a principal with Goettsch Partners, who led the team in this three year project.
