Current Project

Cook County Hospital Development

Development Overview:

The new mixed-use property will be a product of the adaptive reuse of the historic Cook County Hospital Building positioned along West Harrison Street in the Illinois Medical District of Chicago, Illinois. The Cook County Hospital Building features a prominent and iconic structure originally constructed from 1912 – 1914. The original structure consists of eight floors plus a basement and utilizes Beaux Arts-style façade with three-story, fluted Ionic columns. The building is the only example of a Beaux Arts public hospital ever built in the United States. The adaptive reuse of the building will integrate a new contemporary design which protects the historic integrity of the building and showcases the buildings’ unique attributes.

When completed, the Property will feature a 210-key Hyatt-flagged hotel, as well as 72,330 RSF of office space, 24,510 RSF of retail space and a 4,115 RSF Cook County Medical Museum. The office space has a separate entrance and lobby and is situated along the west side of the building.
