Progress on the old Edgewater Hospital is moving forward and crews will be hauling away large amounts of debris from the site in the upcoming days. In a statement form Alderman Patrick O’Connor’s office, He assured residents that there is no safety concern in the removal of the materials.

The statement read, “Please be aware that MCZ Development has people working to clean out debris on the Edgewater Hospital site. Nothing coming out of the building is hazardous, but the garbage and debris need to be removed in order for work to safely continue on the site.”

The Alderman concluded, “I will continue to keep you updated as the demolition schedule becomes finalized and the project progresses.”

Back in April of this year, it was announced that the redevelopment project would take about 14 months. Once completed, the repurposed main hospital building will consist of all rental properties. There will be nine studios, 100 one-bedrooms and 32 two-bedrooms. The property will include 78 spots (possibly 80) in a two-story parking garage.
