Part of the larger $1 billion in funding approved for affordable housing, developers Trinity United Church of Christ is working with Johnson and Lee Architects on the design of the multi-phase proposal.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development at 301 E 43rd Street in Bronzeville.
