Historic 1893 university building to be repurposed as residences in Chicago

The Illinois Institute of Technology is planning to convert its landmark main office building into housing, according to city filings.

The university in Douglas has partnered with Ohio-based developer MCM Company and is currently pursuing a zoning change that would allow the school to convert the building at 3300 S. Federal St., Chicago, IL into up to 84 housing units.

Illinois Tech is excited to be collaborating with MCM on the adaptive reuse of Main Building,” said Mark Zonca, a spokesman for the university.

We are working through zoning approval and negotiation of agreements with MCM for the work that will restore this historic Chicago landmark and convert it to residential apartments,” he continued.
