A groundbreaking has been held for the mixed-use development dubbed Roosevelt Square in the Near West Side. Located on multiple sites across the area near the intersections of W Roosevelt Road and S Racine Avenue, the project will not only construct new housing but also renovate multiple existing structures within its boundaries. Developer Related Midwest is leading the efforts along with the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) and various architects. YIMBY previously reported on all the details of the development during its approval last year.
925 S Ada Street
The National Public Housing Museum located in the Near West Side neighborhood has been issued renovation permits. The site is located on the corner of W Taylor Street and Ada Street. The permits have been issued under the address 925 S Ada Street. As previously reported, the project is part of the larger Roosevelt Square Plan that seeks to further connect the Taylor Street corridor. The developers are Related Midwest and they continue to work in conjunction with Chicago Housing Authority and local firms HED Architects and Landon Bone Baker Architects.
New funding has been secured for the National Public Housing Museum at 925 S Ada Street in the Near West Side. The project is part of the greater Roosevelt Square Plan which includes various residential developments led by Related Midwest and the Chicago Housing Authority. The museum itself will be one of the first of its kind and occupy around 2/3rds of a larger shared building with 15 residential units. The funds will help kick-start construction on the proposal designed by the Chicago based firms of HED Architects and Landon Bone Baker Architects.
