Millennium Park: A History

How about having one of the most beloved parks in America as your front yard? As Millennium Park has become one of the most popular residential areas in Chicago, plenty of folks count themselves in. On top of unrivaled views of the Park and Lake Michigan, Millennium Park residents enjoy top amenities, an exciting location, and some of the City’s top shopping and dining. While you can walk to your office, the area is also flush with public transportation, making it the perfect base to explore all Chicago has to offer. That is if you ever feel like leaving the heart of the action!

While Millennium Park today seems synonymous with Chicago, it’s only been part of the landscape since 2004. For over 150 years, lakefront land was wasted on a tangle of railroad tracks owned by the Illinois Central Railroad. The tracks were a thorn in the side of Daniel Burnham’s 1909 Plan of Chicago, which intended for all land along the lake in Chicago to be public parks.
