Roosevelt Square Phase 3B
Construction at 1257 W Roosevelt Road in Little Italy has now reached its fourth floor, with Related Midwest and the Chicago Housing Authority overseeing the development. The six-story mixed-use structure is part of the broader Roosevelt Square Phase 3B project, which includes three other buildings. This project offers a combination of homes, shops, and the soon-to-open National Museum of Public Housing. Once finished, Roosevelt Square will have 2,441 housing units for both single and multi-family living.
Core construction is now underway at 1257 W Roosevelt Road in Little Italy, under development by Related Midwest in partnership with the Chicago Housing Authority. The six-story mixed-use project represents one of the four buildings within the Roosevelt Square Phase 3B development, which will include new mixed-income residences, retail, and the new National Museum of Public Housing. Roosevelt Square as a whole is set to provide 2,441 total units, taking on the form of both multifamily and single-family buildings.
A groundbreaking has been held for the mixed-use development dubbed Roosevelt Square in the Near West Side. Located on multiple sites across the area near the intersections of W Roosevelt Road and S Racine Avenue, the project will not only construct new housing but also renovate multiple existing structures within its boundaries. Developer Related Midwest is leading the efforts along with the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) and various architects. YIMBY previously reported on all the details of the development during its approval last year.
The Chicago City Council has approved the financing and land-sale for the Roosevelt Square Phase 3B mixed-use development in the Near West Side. Located across multiple parcels mainly around W Taylor Street and W Roosevelt Road, the project is part of the greater Roosevelt Square Plan that includes the rehabilitation of existing apartments, construction of new housing, and a new National Public Housing Museum. The effort is being led by Related Midwest and the Chicago Housing Authority along with various local design firms.
