The first tower crane permit has been issued for the next expansion phase of Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital in Lake View. Spanning eight occupiable floors and encompassing 10 levels in total, the 900 W Nelson Street project is divided into two sub-phases. The current sub-phase, Phase 03A, will be the construction of three occupiable floors and four total levels. This now-underway addition will adjoin an adjacent medical building completed in 2015. Following this, Phase 03B will yield another five occupiable floors and six added levels (excluding the under-hanging mechanical floor) built atop the Phase 03A structure.

Since last week’s site prep update, an initial foundation permit has now been issued for the planned hospital addition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital in Lake View. The construction of a new lateral addition, known as phase 03A, is taking place at 900 W Nelson Street. This structure will be attached to an adjacent medical building constructed in 2015. Once the phase 03A structure has been built, phase 03B – a vertical expansion sitting on top of both the earlier 2015 building and phase 03A – will begin construction.
Site prep continues to advance for a new medical expansion project for Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital in Lake View. Located at 900 W Nelson Street, the development will consist of a new lateral addition (‘phase 03A’) to an adjacent medical building built in 2015, then later by a vertical expansion (‘phase 03B’) sitting atop both the 2015 structure and the phase 03A structure.
As the 21st entry in YIMBY’s year-end countdown, the Obama Presidential Center continues to rise in Hyde Park. Planned by The Obama Foundation, the complex will feature three occupiable buildings within its Jackson Park site, including a museum, a forum building, and a new library branch. In addition to these buildings, the center will also include outdoor areas with play spaces, walking paths, sledding hills, and a pedestrian promenade.
Site prep can be seen progressing for the Obama Presidential Center, a three-building masterplan by The Obama Foundation now underway in Hyde Park. The project will occupy a portion of Jackson Park’s western edge, and will be oriented around a central plaza space that will accommodate planned events and public artwork. Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects and Interactive Design Architects will serve are the architects involved in the building design, while Michael van Valkenburgh Associates, Site Design Group, and Living Habitats have overseen the landscape architecture.
