Facade work is now in full swing for the University of Illinois’ Outpatient Surgery Center & Specialty Clinics, a six-story addition to UI Health‘s hospital campus in the Illinois Medical District.
Earlier this month, a ceremonial groundbreaking was held for a planned five-story educational building, located at 900 W Taylor Street at The University of Illinois Chicago‘s main campus. Officially known as the UIC Computer Design, Research and Learning Center, the project’s footprint will replace a former parking lot, while attaching to the existing Engineering Research Facility. At 135,000 square feet, this new addition will provide students and faculty with 15 classrooms, 35 labs, and supplementary spaces such as student affairs offices and an undergraduate learning and community center.
Foundation work is now underway for a four-story residential building at 133 S Ashland Avenue, located near the western edge of West Loop. Prior to construction, the property was occupied by a parking lot and a two-story commercial building that was demolished in 2019.
Last week, Chicago YIMBY had the opportunity to tour JDL Development‘s two-tower megadevelopment known as One Chicago, located at the northeast corner of River North. At 2.1 million square feet, the mixed-use project will yield a combination of 55,000 square feet of office space, 812 residential units, restaurant and banquet space, and a new 65,000-square-foot Whole Foods at its base.
Since last month’s update, structural work has topped out for 1400 W Randolph Street, a 282-foot tall mixed-use high rise at the western edge of Fulton Market in West Loop. Marquette Companies is the developer of the 26-story project, with plans for 278 rental units and 10,000 square feet of retail at its ground floor.
