Preservation Watch: Old Prentice

Bertrand Goldberg's old Prentice Hospital is heading back to the Landmarks Commission for a Feb. 7th vote re-do. The U-turn is basically just a gesture to the court which deemed the condensed November commission proceedings "arbitrary" and "nontransparent," according to The Tribune. Don't expect enlightenment. All one has to do is read how the item is presented on the agenda (in two parts): consideration of a revised economic impact study and rejection of a landmark status on the basis of the study. At least preservationists have a bit of time in which to organize their arguments— fantastical reuse proposals probably won't cut it. Oughta be a wild time. See you there! [Trib, previously]
