While out taking pics at Open House Chicago last weekend, we snapped a lone shot of Goodman Center on Congress and Wabash. Designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB), the new athletic facility will serve as the future home of Roosevelt University's basketball team, the Lakers. Quite a bit of work has transpired since our visit to the site in late June. Exterior work is nearly complete, and we're on board with the irregularly fenestrated facade, which matches up very closely with the renderings. In addition to a 500-seat gym with retractable bleachers, the 27,834-square foot structure will house administrative offices, a training room, student lounge, meeting rooms, and locker rooms. It is scheduled to open its doors in December.
