This week, YIMBY stopped by the former Pennsylvania Railroad terminal building at Fulton Market Distict’s 375 N Morgan Street, where a partial demolition has taken place. This wrecking work is set to clear the way for a new Guinness Brewery to be co-developed by Guinness and Fred Latsko. The adaptive re-use of the original structure will make way for a 10-barrel brewery and taproom, and will accommodate an Irish-themed restaurant component that sources local chefs.
Last week, Chicago YIMBY highlighted new plans for a Guinness brewery conversion of the former Pennsylvania Railroad terminal building at 375 N Morgan Street in Fulton Market District. Now, demolition has kicked off for the building’s non load-bearing walls as its outer shell undergoes replacement. The project is being co-developed by Guinness and Fred Latsko, and will involve the adaptive re-use of the existing masonry structure, alongside the construction of a new 33-story tower adjacently west.
New plans have been revealed for a Guinness brewery and taproom at 375 N Morgan Street in the West Loop. Developed in collaboration with Guinness and local developer Fred Latsko, the Pennsylvania Railroad terminal building will be turned into the nation’s second Guinness taproom behind the company’s Baltimore location which opened in 2018. Bound by W Kinzie Street to the north, N Peoria Street to the east where the current main entrance is, and Metra tracks to the south, Guinness expressed that its industrial location and rail history made the property the right choice for them.
