ONE Central

Updated March 3, 2021

The ONE Central mixed-use project from Landmark Development is proposed for approximately 32 acres of rail yards between the McCormick Place Convention Center and the Museum Campus on the Near South Side.

Pending the submission of a formal Planned Development (PD) zoning application and the completion of a formal review and approval process, the proposal would be anchored by a multi-modal transit hub. It would also include up to 9,050 residential units, 1.5 million square feet of retail uses, 9.45 million square feet of office space, 1.5 million square feet of hotel uses, 350,000 square feet of event space, and 3,500 parking stalls.

Community Engagement

The proposal requires significant review by the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and other City departments and agencies, as well as public hearings with the Chicago Plan Commission and City Council. A virtual community meeting hosted by DPD and Ald. Pat Dowell (3rd) took place in January 2021.

Planning staff also provided an introductory update on this proposal at a community meeting hosted by Ald. Dowell in July 2019.

Following the ONE Central Community Webinar, DPD sent an initial response letter with comments, concerns, and questions to the development team in February 2021. The letter has been posted by Ald. Dowell's office.

Dates for future meetings and hearings are still to be determined. All questions or comments may be directed to
