The Future of the Michael Reese Site
Will be a dense and delicate series of places, streets and mixed-use development that respects the surrounding areas. The tallest buildings address the lakefront views and align with a series of public terraces that brings the park into this site. An entertainment and hotel district connects directly to McCormick Place. The IIT campus and neighborhood extends with a Research and Tech Campus organized around a new quadrangle. The Bronzeville neighborhood street and park system extend into the southern portion of this site, also where the lowest buildings are located. The entire project focuses on a new transit center and hall.
