The Chicago Department of Planning and Development (DPD) announced the impending deadline for ChiBlockBuilder. ChiBlockBuilder is the City of Chicago’s latest program designed to encourage the purchase and redevelopment of vacant lots owned by the City and simplifies the process of purchasing those properties across both the South Side and West Side. ChiBlockBuilder also increases insight and visibility into the land sales process allowing for a more equitable system. Initial applicants have until Friday, February 3rd to apply.
To apply potential buyers can visit the ChiBlockBuilder website where it’s possible to view available lots via an interactive map of the city. The map also includes relevant information about the land such as environmental clearances, zoning, square footage, and market value. For more information and to apply visit ChiBlockBuilder.
