Status Update: Children’s Memorial Hospital

The new Children’s Memorial Hospital (officially, The Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Memorial Hospital of Chicago) continues its growth spurt at 225 East Chicago Avenue.  The steel frame of the building is rising at what seems like a remarkable speed.  In this photo, it’s up to the 12th floor, but by the time you read this (most of our articles are written a couple of days in advance), it will likely be up to 14 or even 15 of its eventual 22 stories.

No, we’re not going to express an opinion about the proposed heliport for the facility.
