Renovation and construction work are rapidly taking shape for Fulton Market’s new Guinness Taproom. Coordinated by developer Fred Latsko, the project is an adaptive re-use of the former Pennsylvania Railroad Terminal Building at 375 N Morgan Street. A former destination for street art, the converted beer hub will yield a 10-barrel brewery, a pub, and a restaurant with local chef cuisine.
Much of the original brick and interior structure has been retained, while the updated facade will consist of a chocolate-colored brickwork, warehouse-styled windows, and copper metal paneling. The interior will be lined with brick walls and beams, a chandelier, and a large glass wall system for visitors to gaze upon the craft at hand.
There are a range of public transportation options in the vicinity, including bus stops for Route 65 via a five-minute walk north to Grand & Morgan, Route 8 via a five-minute walk northeast to Halsted & Hubbard, and Route 56 via a six-minute walk northeast to Milwaukee, Grand, & Halsted. The L is also accessible for the Green, Pink, and Blue Lines all within a 10-minute walk.
Aberdeen Construction is serving as the general contractor, with an opening on-track early next year.
