Demolition Watch: Old Prentice

New, 1 comment

Prentice Women's Hospital, NE Corner, 4:34pm, 10/08/13The demolition of Old Prentice promises to be a slow, painful affair. Northwestern University spokesperson Alan Cubbage told the Tribune's Blair Kamin to expect full scaffolding in the next month and total demolition by late 2014. To affirm the medical campus is serious about composing a replacement, Cubbage said Northwestern is on target for an early 2015 construction start for its biomed research tower. Kamin decrees that the three architectural firms shortlisted for a soon-to-come design unveiling—Perkins + Will, Goettsch Partners, and Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill—"lack the conceptual gravitas" of several Pritzker winners who signed last year's petition to save Prentice.
