Michael Reese site redevelopment wins key approval

18th February 2021

The developers planning to turn the former Michael Reese Hospital site in Bronzeville into a 49-acre mixed-use campus over the next two decades took a key step toward winning city approval for the project.


The centerpiece would be a 500,000-square-foot building at 31st and Cottage Grove Avenue anchored by the ARC Innovation Center, a medical research facility affiliated with the Sheba Medical Center, Israel's largest hospital.

That building would include retail space and a Bronzeville community center, while other projects in the initial phase would include a mixed-income senior housing project with about 300 units, a new park and renovation of the Singer Pavilion, the only remaining building from the original Michael Reese complex.
