A community town hall webinar will be co-hosted by the Department of Planning and Development (DPD), Ald. Sophia King (4th), and the Michael Reese Advisory Council next month to review updated plans from the GRIT development team for the former Michael Reese Hospital site in Bronzeville.

The webinar will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 14. Registration for the Zoom webinar is open now, and the presentation will be posted in advance of the meeting at

Members of the public wishing to ask a question about the proposal should email their question to or by noon on Monday, Oct. 12.

The 48.6-acre City-owned site is the former location of the Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center. The hospital complex closed in 2008 and the City acquired the property in 2009.

The largely vacant site is highly accessible to both traffic and transit, within close proximity to The Loop, the Museum Campus and McCormick Place, the nation's largest convention center. The GRIT redevelopment team was selected in 2017 as a part of a City-led Request for Proposals process.

The team filed its initial Master Planned Development application with City Council in June 2020 and expects to present their proposal to the Chicago Plan Commission later this year.
