Please join APT WGLC and Landmarks Illinois on an exclusive members-only tour of the Old Cook County Hospital Rehabilitation in Chicago! The tour is open to 20 APT WGLC Members.
The eight story Old Cook County Hospital building, and penthouses was designed and commenced construction in 1912 and was completed in 1916 by Paul Gerhardt (County Architect). The building has been vacant for nearly 20 years and is currently undergoing a restoration to be developed into an office building and hotel with retail space on the first two floors.
