“Sweetgreen is opening a restaurant this week in Lincoln Park.

“The Sweetgreen opens Tuesday at Lincoln Common, 2361 N. Lincoln Ave., Suite A1-110.

“The 2,769-square-foot space is a former 1930s boiler house that was rehabilitated and renovated to keep its industrial-era elements, such as exposed brick, beams and piping, according to Sweetgreen.

“The dining area features a double-height ceiling, handmade tiles and custom millwork, company leaders said. It has room for 26 diners. (Wittich, Block Club Chicago, 10/31/22)

Children’s Memorial Hospital campus was a Preservation Chicago 7 Most Endangered in 2011 and 2016. After a long and complicated advocacy effort, most the of campus buildings were lost. However, Preservation Chicago and preservation partners were able to save the Children’s Memorial Hospital Laundry Building and Boiler House along with two commercial structures. We’re pleased to see this interesting historic building restored and reactivated.
