This is what’s left of the Sydney Hillman Medical Center. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m not happy the building is going (going, going, nearly gone) and I’ve been wondering what the skyscraper that’s slated to go there will do to the area…and, specifically, how it will relate to the gorgeous old churches nearby. I have to say, now that I’ve seen the lot in an almost empty state, I’m even more concerned because it really is not a huge parcel. A friend of mine quipped that the developer of the new tower’s from Chicago, and if anyone knows how to “convince” officials that a project is a good one, it’s a Chicago developer.
Yeah, color me cynical.
