Proximity offers iconic, world-class recreation
Reconnecting Bronzeville to the City

Bronzeville Lakefront will reconnect the site of the former Michael Reese hospital to Chicago’s greatest amenities. Its proximity offers iconic, world-class recreation: lakefront access, acclaimed museums, biking/walking paths, entertainment, the convention center, and sports venues. Drawing from the city’s heart and its soul, Bronzeville’s vibrancy will emanate throughout the Site while its surrounding neighborhoods showcase Chicago’s deep cultural diversity. Renowned educational institutions nearby cultivate young minds, promising a robust local talent pool. Within 10 minutes, four highways provide swift connection to O’Hare and Midway airports. Close proximity to the 27th Street Metra station and CTA routes ensure abundant transit choices, including the new planned 31st Street Metra station.

Bronzeville Lakefront Southside Transformation
Positioned for comprehensive transit access

Integrated Transit Hub

Bronzeville Lakefront is positioned for comprehensive transit access required by South Side residents, and Chicago as a whole. Two multimodal transit hubs integrated into the site will connect Bronzeville to the world via a state-of-the-art new Metra station. The dedicated busway will be centrally located on the site with additional CTA train/bus routes close by. With four major highways within 10 minutes, driving is easy and efficient. Bikeshare stations along 27 miles of public bike paths encourage cycling for commuting and recreation. The future promises advanced transportation modes from the lakefront to the Loop and O’Hare. With a sustainable regenerative design focus, Bronzeville Lakefront will be walkable with proximal retail and workspaces, interspersed with amenities, open space, and the ever-present Lake Michigan.
