New Life for Dr. King’s Lawndale Dream
By Dennis Rodkin


In Lawndale, at the site of the Chicago apartment where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived with his family in 1966, work has begun on the Dr. King Legacy Apartments, a $17-million complex that, when finished, will have 45 units of affordable rental housing, retail space, and a mini-museum dedicated to the efforts of King and others to provide equal access to housing in Chicago.

New patient tower at Rush

Not sure where to put this comment, but this thread seems to be as good a place as any. Here's the comment. The new Rush University Medical Center building looks fantastic.

I have no connection to Rush, but I want to commend them for the space-age design of their new patient tower. Looming over the Eisenhower, it is one of the most prominent projects under construction on the West Side right now. If anyone with a camera could post a photograph, please do so.

Amen brother - I think that building is stunning and a great addition to the skyline, considering it's HUGE lol.

...now if they could only deck over the whole Eisenhower with a linear, urban park...and maybe renovate and expand the old Cook county hospital into some, new U.N./NATO or even U.S. Federal office, or start building foreign embassies near the Medical district.....

Obviously not going to happen anytime soon, if ever. Still, I'm pretty happy that they're even thinking this big.

^ Does it matter?

Actual proposal or not, it has no choice right now but to be a "vision"

Yeah, it is good to include development from west side. I really like staying here I'm getting lot of information from different development.

^ I see that you're new here. Welcome to the forums.

A bit of info on etiquette:

1. Don't respond to posts made 4 years ago just to say "oh, really? Wow, can you tell me more about that?"

2. People look forward to updates, so when you bump up a thread there is a bit of a disappointment to see that the latest post was just from the new guy saying "wow, that's cool!" or something similar.

Anyhow, just wanted to give you a heads up.

Glad to always have a new member in the boards, but it was a bit bumming to see an update for 375 east wacker and only see a "wow that's pretty".

Nonprofit moving forward with affordable housing on Madison
By MARTY STEMPNIAK


...Interfaith Housing Development Corp. hopes to buy the now-vacant Comcast building, 820 W. Madison, gut it, and transform the property into 51 apartments. The development would include retail on the first floor and make use of a former Comcast parking lot across the street on Grove.

...They plan to strip off the Dryvit façade and restore the property to some semblance of its original appearance. The building was originally built as a Cadillac dealership in 1927. It was designed by architect Albert Kahn.

I'm glad this will never happen because it's garbage (if they double or tripled the height then maybe I would like it)

A seven story development in this location is garbage? We're not talking State and Madison you know.

I know but I think a 14 story building would be nicer because It'll help give a density feel to the westside aside from seeing all the different vacant lots

Park Douglas ― Phase I

The next ordinance authorizes the issuance of $8.3 million in loans, the sale of 27 City-owned parcels and fee waivers for the construction of Park Douglas Phase I in the North Lawndale community.

B-M Ogden, LLC plans to construct 19 mixed-income buildings with 137 units of new rental housing with a mix of one to four bedroom apartments. All the buildings will be three-stories and offer 28 market rate, 49 affordable and 60 replacement units for former CHA residents. The building types will range from two- to 17-unit structures.

The $ 43.9 million development will provide housing for the former Lawndale Complex and Ogden Courts public housing developments and is part of the CHA’s Plan for Transformation.

Park Douglas is the first phase of a larger development which will include 300 units of rental housing on the 28th Ward.

The development will be located in the area bounded by Roosevelt Road, California, Talman and Ogden avenues.

City financing will also include $2.7 million in low-income housing tax credits, generating $21.9 million in equity and the writedown of City-owned land valued at $774, 696 along with $1.1 million in donated land from the CHA will generate $724,000 in donations tax credit equity for the project.

Love how they are sticking with the original design of present apartments/homes on the westside instead of bringing in some more carrott orange brick crap or dull modern designs.

$43.9M / 137 = $320K per unit. Affordable housing indeed.

While I dont think its the best looking piece of architecture ever, its proposed for a fairly depressed area. That area NEEDS development and a big (for the area) project that rises to 7 floors, which incidentally is taller than everything around it for blocks.

this is by the CHA, no? so it stands to reason that for the affordable housing, the prices will be heavily subsidized. see:
