One Museum Park is a skyscraper in Chicago, USA. It was designed by Chicago-based architecture firm Pappageorge Haymes, Ltd.[1] and is located in the Near South Side community area.

Overview[edit]

One Museum Park is the tallest building in the Central Station development, the tallest building on the south side of Chicago and the tallest in Chicago south of Van Buren Street.[2] It is also the second tallest all-residential building in Chicago after the The Legacy at Millennium Park.

Museum Park is a complex of multiple residential towers within the Central Station development at the southern edge of Grant Park, across Lake Shore Drive from Chicago's Museum Campus. Construction of One Museum Park was followed by the 54-story One Museum Park West, directly to the west at the corner of Roosevelt Road and Indiana Avenue.
