Harrison Square is a 13-acre mixed-use development transforming Chicago's Illinois Medical District, the largest urban medical district in the country. The project is currently in its first phase redeveloping the historic Old Cook County Hospital that will include an unprecedented 25,000 SF ground floor retail lease opportunity, 210 hotel rooms, and the new Cook County Health and Hospitals System offices.

The landmark building is situated near four world-class hospitals and the largest medical school in the country, University of Illinois School of Medicine. The area currently boasts a dense urban population, excellent pedestrian and vehicular access, and many investments in nearby projects.

The Cook County Hospital building features a prominent and iconic structure originally constructed from 1912 – 1914. The original structure consists of eight floors plus a basement and utilizes Beaux Arts-style façade with three-story, fluted Ionic columns. The building is the only example of a Beaux Arts public hospital ever built in the United States. The adaptive reuse of the building will integrate a new contemporary design which protects the historic integrity of the building and showcases the buildings’ unique attributes. When completed in Summer 2020, the property will feature a Hyatt-flagged hotel, as well as office space, retail space and a Cook County Medical Museum.

The hospital redevelopment is the first phase of an overall mixed-use redevelopment within the Illinois Medical District, led by MB Real Estate and Murphy Development Group.
