Northwestern University’s latest beige block continues to grow in the middle of Streeterville.
When completed, the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Outpatient Care Pavilion (259 East Erie Street) will be 25-stories tall — 14 stories of medical office space, 2 stories of retail, 7 floors of parking, and 2 mechanical floors.
It is also fully buzzword-complient with “LEED certification,” for “world class heathcare,” by the “region’s top physicians.”
Right now it’s up to about the 15th floor, and has not one, but two cranes working on the project. Completion is expected by autumn of 2014.
