Chicago Skate and Wheel Park

Set to be built on the site of the now demolished Central Station, a nine-story building and clock tower constructed for the 1893 Columbian Exposition, the skate park plans by Altamanu Architects call for a structure resembling a train platform, with a pedestrian bridge overlooking the park. Limestone pieces left over from the towering station will be incorporated into the design. O’Neill wants to add railroad rails for skaters to use, as well as skateable sculptures and railroad ties.
