Chicago Landmarks Commission looking for buildings worthy of Landmark designation and being urged to landmark Prentice Women's Hospital


Prentice Women's Hospital

A Commission on Chicago Landmarks sub-committee invites the public to suggest buildings that are worthy of Landmark designation on June 2 at 11 a.m. in the conference room at 33 N. LaSalle St., Suite 1600.

Following this sub-committee meeting, the full Commission will hold its regular monthly meeting at 12:45 p.m. in City Hall, 121 N. LaSalle St., Room 201-A. Preservation Chicago will again request that the Commission consider Prentice Women's Hospital as a landmark building.

Highlighting the preservation issues faced by modernist architecture, the options available for these structures and the future they may face, Prentice Hospital will be the focus of a Chicago Architecture Foundation event on June 14. Titled "Reuse it or Lose it: Prentice and Chicago's Modernist Architecture," the event will be held at Dicks Last Resort, 315 N. Dearborn St., at 6:00 p.m.

Registration is required but the event is free. Register on the CAF website.
