Chicago then and now: Grand Central Station

Chicago's Grand Central Station sat on the corner of Wells and Harrison from 1890 until it was demolished in 1971.

Via Wikipedia, looking south down Wells in 1963


The same view down Wells taken in 2011.

I previously explored this area and now can come full circle.  New construction is taking place.  Apparently a new coal fired power plant is being built on the site.  Or maybe not and the power plant story is just a hoax.  Regardless, something is being built here.
