The 41 units are available via the application on the Chicago Housing Authority site and will be offered at 80 percent of the area median income (AMI), with an eligible income cap of $58,350 for a household of one.

There are three mobility units offered, one in each of the aforementioned layouts. The building contains an elevator, a community room, on-site laundry facilities, bike parking, and 20 accessory parking spaces.
