Future Development Plans

A map of the below future development plans is available here.

  • United Center Retail Development – Planned $75 million retail development consisting of 260,000 square feet of restaurants, bars, a team store, and event space.
  • Malcolm X College – Planned $251 million dollar campus consisting of two buildings at a total of 500,000 square feet. The new campus will focus on healthcare. The Chicago High School for the Arts will move into the old Malcolm X building in 2015.
  • Cook County Hospital Site – Debate continues on whether or not to restore what remains of the historic Cook County Hospital, but there remains great opportunity and available real estate for future development.
  • CTA Circle Line – The Chicago Transit Authority has preliminary development plans for a “Circle” line, with a stop planned for the United Center.  Project teams may choose to include this stop on the project site, but it is not required.
