With work nearly finished on the new 32-story Vertical Campus, Roosevelt University recently announced plans to add another building to the South Loop. With a $3-million donation from discount retail chain owner Larry Goodman, Roosevelt will construct a two-story, multi-purpose athletic facility at the southeast corner of Congress Pkwy. and Wabash Ave. As with virtually every new building that's been announced in recent months, Solomon Cordwell Buenz is designing the Goodman Center. A groundbreaking ceremony was held in late July, and the building is expected to be completed in fall 2012.
