Status Update: The New Loyola University Building

It’s been a while since we checked in on this project.  We first told you about it back in January. Shortly thereafter a snow-covered Dunkin’ Donuts at 24 East Chicago Avenue and some less savory storefronts were turned into dust.

Now the new building’s exterior looks pretty much done, and it’s hard to remember a time when this wasn’t a part of the Loyola University Law Center (25 East Pearson Street).  Unfortunately, like other Loyola buildings, this one shows a blank wall to the world.  Is the university really planning for the day when the brand new McDonald’s next door might be replaced by yet another Loyola expansion?  Seems unlikely.
