SHARE Old Prentice Women’s Hospital off agenda again

It appears that the old Prentice Women’s Hospital will not be on the Commission on Chicago Landmarks Oct. 4 agenda.

Preservationists hoping to save the building had hoped to see it on the draft agenda posted online Friday afternoon. But it wasn’t there.

If there is any discussion about the building, Chris Morris, senior field officer for the National Trust for Historic Places, said members of the Save Prentice Coalition aren’t part of it

“No members of the coalition have been approached by the city for any meetings or discussion,” she said Friday.

“We are hopeful it will show up on the agenda Nov 1,” she added.
