Extensive foundation work and a newly installed tower crane can be seen at Northwestern Medicine Advanced Outpatient Care Center at 4445 W Irving Park Road in Old Irving Park. The parcel occupies the full block bound by W Irving Park Road, N Kenneth Avenue, and N Kilbourn Avenue.
Project architect CannonDesign has segmented the four-story massing into three distinct volumes, which vary both in function and facade design. On the east side of the property will be a large light atrium lobby welcoming patients, staff, and visitors, making use of a glass curtain wall for added natural light. The middle section is oriented around much of the clinical programming, and is encased in a tan masonry exterior that curves outward from the rest of the building.
Lastly to the west side is a parking garage with room for 350 vehicles, lined with both masonry and metal facade treatment throughout its exterior. Meanwhile, the outside area around the building will come with a 2,400-square-foot plaza, providing bike racks, seating, and greenery.
As far as sustainability, the new construction will integrate several eco-friendly components, including electric vehicle charging stations, light spill reduction, materials with low-carbon sourcing, a green roof, and sustainable windows with greater visibility for birds.
Closest transit are bus stops for Routes 54A and 80, located at the adjacent corner of Irving Park & Kilbourn. For rail service, both the CTA L Blue Line and the Metra are available within a 10-minute walk west to the respective Irving Park stations.
Power Construction and Ujamaa Construction are partnering to build the $150 million facility. An exact completion timeline has not yet been revealed.
