The Rees House is Packed Up and Ready for Its Tuesday Move

New, 2 comments

The Harriet F. Rees House is loaded up on a large dolly and ready to make its big move just a block down the street. A previous timeline had indicated that the landmark home would be moved from its current location at 2110 S. Prairie Ave. to 2017 S. Prairie Ave in the first week of November, and now Thornton Tomasetti, the project managers for the move, are revealing that workers will be moving the home on Monday, November 10 Tuesday and Wednesday, November 11th and 12th. The move is just one part of McPier's $600 million plan to build an entertainment district at McCormick Place. Grab your camera and watch this piece of Chicago architectural history slowly roll down the street to its new address.
UPDATE: Although contractor Thornton Tomasetti had indicated that the move would begin next Monday, the official word now from McPier is that the move will begin on Tuesday, Nov. 11, from 8am to 12pm and will continue the following day, also from 8am to 12pm.
