Dearborn Station (also known as Polk Street Station) is the oldest train station serving downtown Chicago. The station was located in Printers Row and owned by the Chicago & Western Indiana Railroad. Cyrus L. W. Eidlitz designed the Romanesque Revival structure in 1885 with a 12-story Romanesque clock tower and steeply pitched roofs. Its walls, hand-made of red pressed brick and pink granite gave a strong presence during a time when the railroads in the United States were the dominant mode of transportation.

Today Chicago’s oldest railroad station serves as a retail shopping mall and an urban neighborhood marketplace. It is also a United States National Historic Landmark. Harbour was responsible for renovating the interior and modernizing the infrastructure to accommodate today’s retail tenants. Our understanding and respect for buildings, especially landmarks, comes from our passion for maintaining a clean, well-organized, documented project.
