There’s a very large, very organized hole in the ground at 4445 West Irving Park Road in Irving Park. Soon, a new four-story building for Northwestern Medicine will rise from it, bringing medical offices and lots of parking.
You can find a wealth of information at this link from Lukas over at Urbanize Chicago.
Currently, this is Chicago’s northernmost and westernmost tower crane.
