It's permanent, intended as a replacement for the current high bay research building that will eventually be replaced to make room for a massive new research building near ERC, which is being planned for completion by the middle of the decade.

Interesting. And the Governor did say recently the State will still be contributing money for a UChicago building...

Hmmmm, I don't know why the state would be contributing, considering UC is a private institution...however, the federal government/Dept of Energy granted $150 million to Fermilab and Argonne each for quantum computing science and development, and both are administered/managed along with UC, so perhaps that's where public funds are coming from Maybe I'm wrong..

The Governor said he considers quantum initiatives to be so important to the economic future of the state that he is committing $200 million to the project. $100 million for UIC, the state's flagship university and $100 million to UChicago, the state's leading private school and quantum powerhouse.

He wants to create a Quantum Silicon Valley in Illinois.

Appreciate the clarification, I was not aware of the additional state investment, on top of what the state is investing in DPI.

I hope the state can keep the necessary momentum to make Illinois the 'Quantum State' (pun intended )

Did they knock down that last remaining house by the parking garage / ER to make way for this High Bay building?

You hope they can *conserve the momentum*

Yeah, from what i can tell, theyre in a pretty good position to keep it up; you might even say theyre in a.. super position..

LOL, I love physics puns - these made my day, thanks

I do hope Chicago and Illinois at large can keep it going with respect to Quantum computing and research. I hope that talent, ideas and capital do not end up going elsewhere in the country.

WestsideLA, I'm not sure what happened with that house/if it's still standing or not. Although I thought all of those 3 flats were owned by UC already

Some fully-fleshed-out renderings and details of Harper Court Phase II. I've heard whispers that things will be moving on this project again soon.

more than half of the building’s 280,000 square feet had already been leased to University of Chicago, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab, the University of Illinois and the Cambridge Innovation Center.
