Central Station was developed by a partnership consisting of The Fogelson Companies, veteran Chicago developers, and Forest City Enterprises Inc., one of the nation's leading real estate companies. Among the earliest residents of Central Station was former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. In 1993, Mayor Daley somewhat shocked the city of Chicago when he sold the family's Bridgeport home and relocated to the South Loop's Central Station neighborhood.
Prior to the planned development led by Gerald W. Fogelson, co-chairman and CEO of the Central Station Development Corporation, Central Station was an intercity passenger terminal. Fogelson proposed a plan to overhaul the warehouse district with a modern residential district and then successfully acquired the property and subcontracted residential as well as mixed-use development. In the early 1990's, Central Station began to assume its residential shape with the construction of luxury townhomes. More recently, this lakefront neighborhood has experienced rapid construction of an increasing amount of luxury townhomes, high-rise condominiums, rental apartments, and retail stores.
