Remaining exterior touches and landscaping are now underway for the six-story medical facility known as the UI Health Outpatient Surgery Center and Specialty Clinics. Replacing a formerly vacant lot at 900 W Taylor Street, the new structure is located directly south of the hospital’s main building in the Illinois Medical District.
Initial details have been announced for the city’s application for the first round of funding from the groundbreaking federal infrastructure program. With $1.2 trillion on the line for states across the nation to use on infrastructure repairs which have been put off for decades, bringing us to a critical point where we’ve seen an increase in bridge collapses and other major failures. The money would be applied for by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the work covered in this first application would be spread across the suburbs and city itself, with the plan to apply for more at a future date.
Initial foundation work is visible at the triangular parcel along the southeast corner of Wrigley Field, which will give way to a three-story DraftKings sportsbook and various dining options. Co-developed by the Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development, this 22,350-square-foot addition at 1012 W Addison Street will replace the former Captain Morgan Club, which later became the Fantasy DraftKings Sports Zone.
Initial details have been revealed for an upcoming mixed-use development at 353-363 E 51st Street in Washington Park. Located just west of the intersection with S Martin Luther King Drive on the northwest corner of the aforementioned park, the new project will redevelop a pair of existing structures varying in heights that have sat vacant for nearly 10 years now. Led by a joint venture made up of locals and co-developers Corey Gilkey and James Daughrity called Policy Kings, the duo is working with a local design firm on the new concept that will revitalize the corner.
