  • This joint venture between UPA and the Near West Side CDC consists of the rehabilitation and modernization of two buildings located 4 blocks apart. These two-story buildings with basements were based on modular plans used by the CHA in the early 1950's and 60's.
  • The project was permitted under the City of Chicago's expedited Green Permit Process and received two green stars under the Department of Housing's Green Residential Program.
  • Sustainable components include sunshading devices, rain water harvesting through cisterns, rain gardens with native plantings and energy-efficient envelope improvements and new mechanical systems.
