New Construction Permit Issued For Cook County Ambulatory Facility

An ambulatory facility being built by Cook County Hospital in the Illinois Medical District, at Damen Avenue and Polk Street.

Clayco's construction of a new medical facility in the Illinois Medical District is nearing the finish line after the Buildings Department issued a construction permit interior fit-out of the nine-story building at Polk Street and Damen Avenue.

Clayco was awarded the contract from Cook County Health & Hospital Systems last August. The ambulatory facility cost $138M to build; Clayco was awarded a $109M contract to develop the building, which is expected to be completed in fall 2018. The work covered under this permit is estimated to cost $33.9M.

The ambulatory facility is one of several high-profile developments happening in the IMD since Dr. Suzet McKinney was named executive director in September 2015. This development is across the street from IMD Gateway, Jack Higgins' $1B mixed-use development at Ogden and Damen avenues.
