Prentice Women's Hospital to be demolished
After a hard-fought battle by preservationists, Prentice Women’s Hospital won’t be saved from the wrecking ball. On Thursday, the Northwestern University News issued a press release saying the Chicago Commission on Landmarks rejected giving the shuddered Streeterville building landmark status. According to the Tribune, the Bertrand Goldberg-design did in fact meet the necessary criterion. Prentice's owner, Northwestern University, now has the official green light to continue with its plans of building a new medical research facility.
