Construction for the National Public Housing Museum at 1322 W Taylor Street continues to progress in Little Italy. This project is a collaborative effort between Related Midwest and the Chicago Housing Authority, and is part of the larger Roosevelt Square masterplan that also includes three new mixed-use buildings.
Construction has commenced on an expansion for The Danish Home of Chicago at 5656 N Newcastle Avenue in Old Norwood Park. Located on the intersection with N Newcastle Avenue within the residential area, the added space will sit on some of the green space of the site. The project is being developed by The Danish Home Foundation with local architecture firm HED serving as the designers.
The Committee on Design has reviewed the mixed-use development at 935 E 63rd Street in Woodlawn. Located on the intersection with S Ingleside Avenue and replacing a block-long vacant lot, the project was the winning entry of the Department of Planning and Development’s Woodlawn RFQ earlier this year. Dubbed ‘Woodlawn Social’, the proposal is being led by a team made-up of Tandem Ventures, KMW Communities, and POAH with KoningEizenberg and HED Architects as the designers.
The National Public Housing Museum is on its way to becoming a new cultural landmark for Little Italy and the broader Near West Side as extensive renovation work continues. The development firm Related Midwest, in partnership with the Chicago Housing Authority, has taken on this project located at 1322 W Taylor Street.
