Status Update: Northwestern Memorial Hospital Outpatient Care Pavilion
Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s latest construction project is moving along swiftly. The Outpatient Care Pavilion (240 East Ontario Street) will be a 25-story medical and office building that’s roughly 30% parking. It is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014. Like all new Northwestern projects, it has the two thing people living in Streeterville hate: Skywalks that suck the life out of what is supposed to be a pedestrian-friendly street grid, and excessive parking which exacerbates the area’s daily traffic jams.
