These small residential infill projects don’t get as much fanfare as the larger more flashy projects, but they are vital in stitching together the holes in the fabric of the city. I am excited every time I see an empty lot especially on the south or west sides being developed for a purpose that’s not car-oriented.
Yup. I love the South/West Side coverage. It’s incremental progress but I love to see it happening.
Good Evening! Long time fan of the Bronzeville area. How can I receive updates on buying or renting one of the units?
