The Malcolm X College campus is sticking around even after the city ushers in the new one in 2015 (recall the mayor's $251M plan). Greg Hinz reports for Crain's that the Chicago High School for the Arts will take over the space. That's a major upgrade for the selective school, which now shares space with a Bronzeville elementary school, and should enable it to expand enrollment well above the current 600. The Malcolm X building supplies facilities like an auditorium, dance studios and computer labs to which ChiArts will have exclusive rights. The school's curriculum consists of five hours a day of general ed and three hours of arts ed. [Crain's, previously]
