Another UIC surface lot will soon meet its maker. Over at Skyscraper Page, user Kippis has come through with a sole rendering of the new Advanced Chemical Technology Building (ACTB). The state-of-the-art research facility is slated for a vacant lot on Halsted just north of Roosevelt. It's designed to promote collaboration and innovation among scientists from various disciplines, including chemistry, biology, and physics. Sounds combustable! The new building will generate 300 jobs and cost $104M, with the state kicking in $64M. Groundbreaking is planned for mid-2013, and construction is expected to last 30 months.Good stuff.
