The Beverly/Morgan Park area is a charming historic community on Chicago’s far south side.
One of the most prominent and unique features of the neighborhood is the Metro Rock Island train line and the small, mixed-use districts that surround it.
Across a two mile stretch, 6 Metra stations help shuttle thousands of residents downtown every morning.
Unfortunately for the community, these beautiful and architecturally-significant stations - 5 of which are Chicago Landmarks - have become underused instead of celebrated.
By opening within the unused kiosk at the historic 95th Street Metra Station, Two Mile Coffee Bar activates and celebrates the currently underused - yet beautiful - facility.
It fills the building with human connection - enhancing the commute as well as the surrounding community.
