Children’s Hospital Gets Its Crane On

If you follow our Twitter tweet feed , then you got the alert on February 5th when the crane went up at the new Children’s Memorial Hospital on Chicago Avenue.  Now that it’s in place, construction is really starting to move along.

Up to this point, virtually all of the construction work had been going on underground.  Now that the crane is in place, things are starting to spring up.

As of this writing, just a couple of days after the photo above was taken, the elevator shaft has already risen a couple of stories above the construction fence.  It shouldn’t be too much longer before the exterior starts to take shape.
