Checking up on the topped-out and craneless Joan and Paul Rubschlager Building at Rush

Joan Paul Rubschlager Building March 2021

The Joan and Paul Rubschlager Building, b/w the Chicago Skyline, from Rush University Medical Center.

What? It’s been more than a year since I was here? Yeah, I guess it’s been awhile for a lot of Chicago construction projects. Stupid pandemic and laziness.

Over at Rush University Medical Center, Power Construction continues work on the Joan and Paul Rubschlager Building. After breaking ground in June of 2019, this 10-story, 480,000-square-foot outpatient care facility still has a long way to go before it’s ready for patients, with a projected 2022 opening date. It is a design by West Loop architecture firm Nia Architects in collaboration with HDR.
