More Information
  • The 2004 purchase of this building was the first expansion of the Northwestern University campus in more than ten years.
  • 2004: This building was purchased by Northwestern University. Because the purchase would take the building off of the local property tax rolls, costing the city $400,000 per year in taxes, the university gave $1,050,000 to the city of Evanston, $175,000 to the Evanston Township High School District 202, and $175,000 to Evanston-Skokie School District 65.
