One of Michigan Avenue's most prominent icons is expanding. And Curbed had a chance to check in on the progress. Last August, Fourth Presbyterian Church announced that it was scrapping highly contentious plans to build a 700-foot tower in favor of a slightly more modest five-story addition. The modern and airy structure contrasts sharply with the church's neo-gothic architecture and will include classrooms, an outdoor patio, and a 350-seat chapel. One of the design's signature features is a spacious, two-story passageway, allowing for a seamless transition between the new and original buildings. More updates as construction advances!
