Marquette Finishes Adaptive Reuse of West Loop Hospital into Apartments
Marquette Companies has completed The Thompson at Fulton Market, a 210-unit mixed-use apartment building at 150 N. Ashland Avenue, on the former Mary Thompson Hospital site in Chicago’s Fulton Market neighborhood.
Named for Dr. Mary Thompson, Chicago’s first female doctor and the first woman known to have performed major surgery, The Thompson is comprised of a new, 12-story glass and concrete building. This structure is integrated directly with an original five-story brick building that was constructed in the 1920s as part of the hospital and is located on the south side of the property.
The Thompson offers studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments as well as 32 affordable units. It’s the firm’s fifth development in the neighborhood and the property includes 2,400 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
ParkFowler Plus designed the property’s facade and Power Construction served as the general contractor. Chicago-based artist Lefty Out There (aka Francesco Campanella) created several murals for the building.
