A lakefront site once pegged for condominiums will soon be the home of a new children's pavilion.

Chicago Lakeshore Hospital officially began renovations of the five-story building sitting at 4720 N. Clarendon Avenue. The five-year, $200 million expansion project is expected to create over 200 jobs.

The pavilion will be a state-of-the-art facility that will treat children up to age 17. It is expected to open this fall.
