The core and superstructure is now rising for Harper Court Phase II, located at 5201 S Harper Avenue in Hyde Park. Officially dubbed “Hyde Park Labs,” the mixed-use 13-story building is an effort between The University of Chicago, Trammell Crow, and Beacon Capital Partners. The 302,000-square-foot structure will consist primarily of lab and office space geared towards STEM-orient companies, while also introducing 4,000 square feet of retail. The University of Chicago will occupy a portion of the $225 million building for its own engineering and quantum research.
