Ogilvie Transportation Center

4/11/2012 | Chicago, IL

The Ogilvie Transportation Center was built in 1987 to replace the Renaissance Revival style Chicago and North Western Terminal which was built on the same site in 1911. This station is the terminus for three Metra routes operated by Union Pacific, the UP North, Northwestern and West lines, which handle over 40,000 passengers and operate 200 trains in and out of the city each weekday. The station has sixteen tracks and eight island platforms.

Constructed above the new Ogilvie Transportation Center, the Citigroup Center is a 42-story, 588-foot skyscraper designed by the architecture firm Murphy/Jahn and constructed between 1984 and 1987.
