Dubbed ‘The Ave’, the project is located on the southwest corner with Central Park Avenue and is part of a larger multi-phase proposal to revitalize various vacant lots across the changing neighborhood. Developer KMW Communities is working with local design firms Gensler, Nia, and Site Design Group on the affordable housing proposal.
The Chicago Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has announced their three finalists for the East Garfield Park RFQ.

Right on the intersection with N Kedzie Avenue, all proposals will defer the two remaining sites onto a future development phase.
