CTU Academic Center

Location:Chicago, Illinois
Client: Catholic Theological Union
Project description: Antunovich Associates collaborated with the Catholic Theological Union, the largest Catholic graduate school of theology in the United States, on the expansion of its Hyde Park campus in Chicago, Illinois.

The new Academic Center, a five-story “contextual modern” building constructed on the south side of Cornell Avenue, contains classrooms, assembly spaces, offices, an atrium, a state-of-the-art library and a parking garage. This innovative building combines all of the academic uses of the institution into a unique mixed-use structure. 160 parking spaces are nestled into the lower floors of the building, concealed from view from the street. The generous atrium integrates all floors of the building both spatially, and with elevated connections between key functional areas.

The 10-story former academic building at the corner of Cornell Avenue and 54th Street was renovated to serve as a residential facility complete with dining facilities and offices as part of the same development.
