Congress Parkway Streetscape Plan
The Illinois Medical District at Chicago serves as a premier research, educational, biotechnology, and medical campus in the region. Enhanced demarcation of its boundaries is an element that had been desired for numerous years. As part of its capital improvement plan, IMD worked with local institutions and other stakeholders in preparation of urban design and streetscape concepts that represent the importance of the area. The plans were used to generate preliminary budget estimates for inclusion in capital improvement expenditures for upcoming years.
