Site Purchase Complete for the Redevelopment of Former Children's Memorial Hospital Site in Chicago's Lincoln Park

(CHICAGO) – Co-developers McCaffery Interests and Hines today announced the closing of their purchase of the site of the former Children’s Memorial Hospital, in the heart of Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. The parcel has been vacant since the hospital moved to its new facility in 2012.

Redevelopment of the six-acre site, located at the intersection of Lincoln Avenue, Fullerton Parkway and Halsted Street, will soon commence with demolition of the existing hospital structure scheduled for the first quarter of 2016. Vertical construction is planned to begin in the first quarter of 2017; and initial occupancy is planned for late 2018.

The closing of an equity investment in the project by Henley Holding Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (“ADIA”), was also announced.

The new development, which was approved by the Chicago City Council in April 2014, will consist of: two 19-story luxury apartment buildings with a total of 540 units including a significant affordable housing component; up to 60 low-rise for-sale condominium residences; and approximately 160,000 square feet of retail and commercial space. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Antunovich Associates, the project will add residential and retail vibrancy to this unique and significant site in the center of Lincoln Park. The project contemplates the adaptive reuse of several historic structures and will provide the community with over 57,000 square feet of accessible open space including a landscaped central plaza, ceremonial garden and children’s play area. Additionally, the development will include substantial investments in public infrastructure to facilitate vehicular and bicycle circulation and improve the pedestrian experience. The project will implement the latest sustainable design and construction practices and will target LEED® certification.

Dan McCaffery, CEO of McCaffery Interests, commented “We are delighted to be associated with two organizations that are committed to quality and performance at the highest level. Together with our partners, we intend to create a project that the residents of Lincoln Park and Greater Chicago can visit with pride.”

Hines Senior Managing Director Greg Van Schaack noted, “The redevelopment of this site has been long-awaited and our team has an aligned vision to deliver a timeless asset that will be cherished by the community.”
