The new building sits on the opposite northwest corner of my Starbucks perch and blocks my view of Lurie Children's Hospital (where my wife works). Minor consideration. The RIC bought the lot back in 2009 when I imagine they got a pretty good deal. Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago will remain close and connected to the top medical hub with Northwestern University medical campus, Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital and various associated medical offices.
Large commercial and residential new construction from Streeterville to South Loop has been booming throughout 2014.
