Earlier this week, we covered 1257 W Roosevelt Road, a new residential building in Little Italy. This building is part of the broader Roosevelt Square Phase 3B, a collaboration between Related Midwest and the Chicago Housing Authority. Today’s article focuses on 1357 W Roosevelt Road, a similarly-designed structure located one block west and also part of this phase of the master plan. Having now reached the fifth floor in exterior construction, this six-story project will house 70 apartment units.

A courtesy presentation was given to the Chicago Plan Commission for the second-phase of the LeClaire Courts redevelopment at 4458 S Cicero Avenue in Garfield Ridge. Located on the corner with W 45th Street, the proposal will replace the former home of the public housing project of the same name. The development is being led by The Habitat Company and Cabrera Capital Partners with local firm SCB working on its design.
