The Green at 320 S Canal
Riverside Investment & Development Company
Located adjacent to Chicago Union Station’s historic Headhouse Building and Transit Center as well as a new 50-story office tower, The Green at 320 is one of Chicago’s largest privately owned public parks in an area of the city with little green space.
Constructed over the top of a parking garage, this 1.5-acre space is a verdant oasis in an otherwise dense and high-traffic area of the city; an urban respite for both the adjacent office tenants and neighborhood, and a welcoming destination for the bustling nearby commuter hub. The Green at 320 is based on the principle of contrast; a decidedly organic and flexible layout in contrast with the adjacent sleek office tower and surrounding skyline. The park is designed as a flexible central green surrounded by lush garden seating alcoves, an amphitheater, retail, and circulation. Part of what makes the space unique is the curated activation efforts developed in collaboration with a public space programming consultant. Examples of activation include fitness/wellness in the park, a farmers market, evening movies, live music, poetry reading/open mic, outdoor games, an outdoor library, and even “borrow-a-blanket” stations for impromptu picnics on the lawn.
