Old Cook County Hospital Redevelopment Study
Study envisions future of Chicago Beaux Arts monolith and surroundings
A design study offers options for transforming the vacant Cook County Hospital, once the world’s largest medical facility, into a global medical destination.
Legat’s Alan F. Bombick and other members of Chicago’s Ely Chapter of Lambda Alpha International (land economic society) developed ideas for possible uses and design concepts.
- Mixed-use tower seen for miles and visible from the expressway capitalizes on increasing activity in Chicago’s West Side
- Concept focuses on reuse and reactivation of the 100-year-old structure to create a front door to the medical district
