Status Update: Children’s Memorial Hospital

This is probably the six zillionth status update we’ve done for the new Children’s Memorial Hospital (225 East Chicago Avenue). But I happened to be in a hospital and managed to snap this picture of the back side of the new building.  Looks pretty good so far.  You can see the area on the left setback where the green roof and play area will be, and how the building cantilevers over its right side at the same point.
