Coming in at 11th place in this year’s countdown is the Illinois Masonic Hospital addition at 900 W Nelson Street in Lake View East. Located adjacent to the train tracks on the western edge of the existing campus, the multi-phase expansion has been accelerated to include the new patient tower now. The project is being led by the hospital with SmithGroup working on its design after multiple years of planning.
Claiming the 20th spot in our year-end countdown is the new University of Chicago Cancer Center at 5654 S Drexel Avenue within the UChicago campus in Hyde Park. Located on the intersection with E 57th Street and replacing one of the last vacant lots in the campus, the project broke ground back in October. The university and UChicago Medicine are developing the expansion which is being designed by local firm CannonDesign.
We continue our 2023 countdown with the 30th place going to the Rush Specialty Hospital at 516 S Loomis Street in Little Italy. Located on the northwest corner of the intersection with W Harrison Street, the building is receiving its final touches as construction quickly wraps up prior to winter. The project is a collaboration between the Rush University System and Select Medical, with GWG3 Architecture working on its design.
Facade work for the five-story Rush Specialty Hospital at 516 S Loomis Street in the Little Italy neighborhood is nearing completion. This new facility represents a partnership between the Rush University System and Select Medical. Located on the same block as the Joan and Paul Rubschlager building that opened earlier this year, the hospital is complemented by an adjacent third plot, which offers potential for a building spanning up to 855,000 square feet.
Steel for the expansion of Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital in Lake View is now rising above grade. This new medical wing, located at 900 W Nelson Street, will stand eight stories and be divided into two distinct sub-phases.
