Where history is made time and time again

Property Highlights

  • A storied place

    The story of the Central Standard dates back to 1883. As a banking hall for some of the nation’s biggest deals, it was here that leaders gathered to establish America’s four time zones. Today its name, the Central Standard, and its original bank vaults remind us of that historic period as well as the milestones ahead. 

  • Modern design and amenities

    Rich history meets contemporary design at the Central Standard. Here, tenants will discover a cutting-edge workplace, complete with a modern fitness center, lounge, and rooftop deck with sweeping views of the Chicago skyline.

  • Energizing neighborhood

    The Central Standard is conveniently located in Chicago's Central Loop, a neighborhood that just keeps getting better. Popular retailers have flocked to the area along with major investments in the neighborhood’s art and community events, making this the new place to be in Chicago.

  • Easy to access

    The Central Standard is exactly that—central. It offers easy access to I-90/94 as well as several other nearby thoroughfares. For a more carbon-efficient commute, you’re just a short walk from Chicago’s major commuter train, CTA elevated rail stations, and local bus stops.
