GUIDING VALUES

Bronzeville Lakefront development
The History

Grounded in Legacy

Bronzeville Lakefront will be constructed on the site of the former Michael Reese Medical Center, which closed its doors in 2008 after a 127-year run as one of Chicago’s top medical care centers. Like the historic Michael Reese hospital, Bronzeville Lakefront will be a first-in-class and inclusive epicenter of innovation. Global health innovators—from health sciences to biotech — will travel from all corners of the world to build on the hospital’s legacy as the home to many firsts in medicine and health care.

The Healthy Neighborhood of the Future

Built on the Principles of Regenerative Design

Bronzeville Lakefront will set a new standard for healthy living. Spearheaded with the next generation thought leadership of  Jason F. McLennan, this development project is fueled by the philosophy of regeneration. From regenerating the local economy with 75,000 jobs to incorporating 9+ acres of green space, the result is a lifestyle centered around sustainability, health, and well-being. Bronzeville Lakefrontwill leverage the native ecology of the land itself to create a vibrant, walkable, and livable community.

Sustainability

Future Home of a World-Leading Green Megadevelopment

This 100+-acre site serves as a blank slate for equitable, green, cutting-edge development. Bronzeville Lakefront will be home to “living buildings,” which connect occupants to light, air, food, nature, and community. All buildings will be designed with sustainability and regeneration in mind to promote a healthier environment for all. The additional green spaces will serve as an eco-friendly solution to stormwater management and contribute to the neighborhood’s air quality, ultimately improving the quality of life.
