Introducing the World to Chicago
It is another beautiful day on the lakefront where the elegant yachts of Chicago’s First Lady Cruises glide effortlessly, internationally-recognized symbols of the best way to see the most iconic sites of the Windy City. Operated by third-generation owners Bob and Holly Agra, Chicago’s First Lady Cruises and its sister company, Mercury Sightseeing Boats, have hosted millions of tourists, Fortune 500 corporations and global dignitaries during the companies’ eight decade history. With help from Haymarket, the cruise companies’ partnerships with the Chicago Architecture Foundation and the City are stronger than ever. Now, the city’s most prominent maritime ambassadors are working with City and Federal leaders to break new records in tourism and promote Chicago as a global destination for culture, commerce and economic opportunity.
An Amazing Place Where Kids Come First
The new Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago – and the child’s hand which indicates its presence – is a ‘beacon of hope’ for families in their time of greatest need. From the hospital’s campus expansion efforts in Lincoln Park to its historic relocation to downtown Chicago, Haymarket has helped Lurie Children’s navigate complex community impact issues so that it can grow to achieve its mission. As the organization continues to expand its care network, Haymarket will be by its side to help foster relationships that exemplify Lurie Children’s values and promote its unique focus on children’s well-being.
Historically Inspired Row Homes Coming to Downtown Chicago
When Tawani Enterprises decided to build its first new-construction development in downtown Chicago, the company called on Haymarket to guide the introduction of the project to City Hall and the community. Enthusiastically embraced by community leaders and aspiring tenants alike, eight historically inspired row homes will soon transform a long-vacant lot into beautiful residences. The project will continue to advance Tawani’s goal of preserving the past while creating timeless homes and buildings that are relevant for today and well into the future.
Redefining the Blue H
Sandra Bruce, President and CEO of Presence Health, took the stage in front of a sell-out City Club of Chicago crowd. Her visual aids – a pair of running shoes, a coronary stent and a smartphone – powerfully underscored the community engagement efforts that are transforming the system’s eleven state-wide hospitals into thriving centers of community health. A partner throughout the organization’s evolution from Chicago’s leading Catholic hospital system to the second largest health system in the state, Haymarket is proud to be part of Presence Health’s leadership in introducing a new paradigm for community healthcare in Illinois.
Creating Economic Opportunity for Chicagoland’s Diverse Communities
Resurrection University College of Nursing and College of Allied Health was outgrowing its suburban facility. Faced with a nationwide nursing shortage and the need to expand access to job training for underrepresented communities, the University began to explore options for relocating its facilities. With the help of Haymarket, the University forged a $4.7 million financing partnership with the City of Chicago allowing it to establish a new campus in the Humboldt Park Commercial TIF District. Millions of dollars in additional federal funds made further investment possible in the heart of Chicago’s Hispanic community. Today, the University has more than doubled its enrollment. Its students boast the highest certification pass rates in the state and the University itself serves as a thriving engine of economic opportunity for Chicagoland’s diverse communities.
