The Simpson Querrey Biomedical Research Center gets steelier

Simpson Querrey Biomedical Research Center

The Simpson Querrey Biomedical Research Center rises in Streeterville.

More iron, more concrete, more fun for spectators. The Simpson Querrey Biomedical Research Center continues to grow in Streeterville. Northwestern University’s new facility, on the site where Prentice Women’s Hospital once stood, is growing toward its goal of 14 stories. (Phase Two will add up to 16 additional floors.)

Power Construction has been hard at work on this one since ground was broken back in May 2015. Designed by Perkins+Will, construction has included extensive foundation work below grade, now hidden by all the superstructure we see today. And there’s remains a lot of work to be done, with the goal of a late-2018 opening.
