Skinner West Elementary School Annex

1260 West Adams Street

The PBC managed the construction of a new, 36,000-square-foot annex to relieve overcrowding at Mark T. Skinner West Elementary School. This four-story annex is home to 22 classrooms, including an art room, a computer room, and a science lab, as well as a multipurpose room that can accommodate up to 120 students for lunch.

“Skinner students are working hard to live up to their promise and potential, and this new annex will help ensure they are earning the first-rate education they deserve. Expectations are high for Chicago students, and they deserve the space and facilities they need to succeed.”

– Mayor Rahm Emanuel

The PBC’s scope of work also included landscaping, parking lot upgrades and renovations to the existing building.

The PBC opened the original Skinner West facility in 2009. View more information about that project here.
