Members of the public wishing to ask a question about the proposal should email their question to or by noon on Monday, Oct. 12.
The 48.6-acre City-owned site is the former location of the Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center. The hospital complex closed in 2008 and the City acquired the property in 2009.
The largely vacant site is highly accessible to both traffic and transit, within close proximity to The Loop, the Museum Campus and McCormick Place, the nation’s largest convention center. The GRIT redevelopment team was selected in 2017 as a part of a City-led Request for Proposals process.
The team filed its initial Master Planned Development application with City Council in June 2020 and expects to present their proposal to the Chicago Plan Commission later this year.

Join our community in a ‘Zombie Ride’ as we demand environmental justice and rally against General Iron’s agenda to pollute our community!!!
At the end we will merge with GWHS for a student/parent rally, demanding environmental justice!!! We want General Iron out!
As a community we have dealt with pollution for decades. After a victory over Petcoke, the East Side has strived to better the environmental impact in our community. The community has come together to clean the soil at the Hegewisch little league field which held hazardous amount of manganese. As well as the cleaning of residential area that has held hazardous amounts of manganese due to S.H. Bell. In recent years we have been fighting against General Iron planning to move to the East Side.
General Iron, originally located in Lincoln Park, has had 2 explosions in the last 5 years. They became massive polluters in Lincoln Park- after they were forced to close after their second explosion in May they finalized their move to the East Side by merging with RGM. RGM is a recycling plant located near GWHS and GWES on 116th street.
We have tried to battle against the Mayor, the environmental board and the alderwoman to not sign off on the remaining permits that General Iron needs.
We deserve clean air, we deserve health.
Únete a nuestra comunidad en ¡Un “Zombie Ride” mientras exigimos justicia medioambiental y nos reunimos contra la agenda del General Iron para contaminar a nuestra comunidad!
Al final nos fusionaremos con el GWHS para un rally de estudiantes/padres, exigiendo justicia ambiental!!! Queremos al general Iron fuera del East Side.
Como comunidad hemos abordado la contaminación durante décadas. Después de una victoria sobre Petcoke, el East Side se ha esforzado por mejorar el impacto ambiental en nuestra comunidad. La comunidad se ha unido para limpiar el suelo en el campo de la pequeña liga Hegewisch que tenía una cantidad peligrosa de manganeso. Además de la limpieza de la zona residencial que ha mantenido cantidades peligrosas de manganeso debido a S.H. Bell. En los últimos años hemos estado luchando contra el general Iron planeando trasladarnos al East Side.
General Iron, originalmente ubicado en Lincoln Park, ha tenido 2 explosiones en los últimos 5 años. Se convirtieron en contaminadores masivos en Lincoln Park, después de que se vieron obligados a cerrar después de su segunda explosión en mayo, finalizaron su traslado al East Side fusionándose con RGM. RGM es una planta de reciclaje ubicada cerca de GWHS y GWES en la calle 116.
Hemos intentado luchar contra el alcalde, la junta medioambiental y la concejona para no firmar los permisos restantes que necesita el General Iron.
Merecemos aire limpio, merecemos salud.


George Washington High School youth from student organizations such as Student Voice Committee, Black Student Alliance, LGBTQIA+ Collective, and Patriot Peace Warriors are fighting against the environmental injustices our neighborhood is facing with the threat of the polluting metal shredder, General Iron, being relocated mere miles away from the school campus. These young people are taking action & holding a rally against General Iron and the environmental racism our city officials enforce on us in the Southeast side.
The rally will be held at George Washington High School, [3535 E 114th St, Chicago, IL 60617] from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM. Parents of GWHS and local community members are welcomed and even highly encouraged to attend. Attendees must wear a mask and practice social distancing. As always, COVID-friendly social activities and snacks will be open to participants. Youth speakers will be emphasized in the event, and any young people from the Southeast side who’d like to speak are welcome to contact us directly.
We stand in solidarity with our community organization supporters: Bridges // Puentes, United Neighbors of the 10th Ward, and Southeast Youth Alliance.

The Black Community Collaborative works to advocate for and create culturally relevant solutions to support the academic needs of our students. Black Parents SPEAK! We would like to hear from you about your personal experience within Chicago Public Schools. This survey will be used to collect data so that we can create culturally relevant supports to address the needs of Black students in the district. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.

Illinois Humanities  Grants Info 


Through funding from the Federal CARES Act, and with additional support from donations raised during our Public Humanities Award program in May, we have issued almost 200 Illinois Humanities Emergency Relief Grants, totaling more than $700,000. As you can imagine, it has meant having our entire team involved – and I can’t say enough about what it means to work with such dedicated, professional, and unstoppable colleagues.

These funds are already being used by organizations around the state to stay financially viable, adapt and pivot programs, and undertake projects that use humanities to document the experiences of communities throughout Illinois during the pandemic. The full list of grantees is available here. Upcoming grant opportunities include grants through Envisioning Justice (August 15th and October 15th) and Community Grants (September 15th). Please visit our website for more details.
