And the medical officer tower has grown from 8 stories to now 12...

The original plan was to knock down Mitchell and build a new Cancer Hospital. Then they decided to renovate but are now finding it very expensive.
In the Harper projects, we have been hearing updates over the past few years on it. We haven't heard anything about this medical faculty tower in 5 years.

They're very much real and actually happening. I've heard the number $150M bandied about.

I obviously don't have any insider info. I just wish UofC would actually update us on some of these projects. We have heard nothing about the cancer center in three years, and those supposed medical building in five years. I won't believe any of this is actually happening until it does. I knew that they had $150 mil for this project, but the case three years ago was that it had become too expensive, and since then, there has been radio silence.

There's also two lots next door that are for sale, presumably for a mid-rise development
That's amazing. I lived in the Picadilly for a year back when it was Grad/Postdoc housing for UC and of course the ballroom was closed off.

The Study Hotel is also under construction next door, isn't it? I realize it isn't as far along. I was just trying to confirm it's started.

This makes sense in more ways than one since it extends the University's ownership of the land on both sides of the Midway:

Also, the University will be opening an office on 63rd St., according to this article. It may be a medical office for UChicago Medicine:

Nice! He's been back at it since December 2019 apparently. Glad to see he's giving the blog some love again. I used to check it out almost every day.

UChicago buys last property next to parking garage. The master plan shows this land will eventually be used to expand the parking garage to the whole block:

Do you have an address for this "Vintage 2-Flat" I just don't have the time to wrestle with the paywall.
