Chicago healthcare facility demolishing student housing for outpatient care facility

March 15, 2017

A block of low-rise apartment buildings near Rush University Medical Center in Chicago are being razed to make room for the Rush Center for Advanced Health Care, according to an article on the Curbed Chicago website.

The buildings previously served as student housing and were permanently closed in June of 2016.

The project will consolidate outpatient services from multiple buildings spread across the hospital system's Near West Side campus. 

The building will be roughly 550,000 square feet and cost $500 million. It is expected to connect to the Rush’s signature tower building via a skybridge and will include its own separate parking structure.
