Structured Development has announced its second phase construction of Harrison Row Townhomes at 2849 W Congress Parkway, an affordable for-sale townhome community in Chicago’s East Garfield Park. This phase includes 33 total residences, each with three bedrooms and 1.5 baths. There will be a major modular element to this project, with 14 of these duplex townhomes, a total of 28 units, built with modular construction. The homes are to be priced from $245,000 under the City’s Affordable Requirements Ordinance, targeting prospective residents making up to 120 percent of the Area Median Income. These buyers are to be sourced through the Chicago Community Land Trust, whose objective is to preserve long term housing affordability. This development serves as a means to provide reasonably-priced housing to those who may not be able to afford market rate housing, but are excluded from other ARO developments targeting those making up to 60 percent of the Area Median Income. A portion of the project will help Structured Development fulfill its ARO obligations for the underway Shops at Big Deahl masterplan, located along the Clybourn Corridor.

The second phase includes two shorter residential buildings on the north end of the site fronting W Blackhawk Street.
