The Resurrection Project
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the affordable housing development at 2136 S Ashland Avenue in the Lower West Side. Located just north of the intersection with W Cermak Road, we first covered the proposal in January which will be replacing a vacant lot across the street from Benito Juarez High School. Dubbed ‘Casa Yucatan’, the structure is being developed by The Resurrection Project who are working with local architecture firm DesignBridge on it.
Initial details have been revealed for a new mixed-use development at 2140 S Ashland Avenue in Heart of Chicago. Located on the intersection with W 21st Place and across the street from Benito Juarez High School, the new proposal will replace a vacant lot near the industrial heart of the predominantly Latin neighborhood right on the border with Pilsen. The project comes to us from local developer The Resurrection Project with various affordable developments nearby. At the moment, an architect is unknown.
Construction is getting closer to completion or 2010 S Ashland Avenue, a 16-unit affordable residential project in Pilsen. The development will feature eight one-bedrooms, six two-bedrooms, and two three-bedroom apartments. Amenities will include a community room with a library and lounge, on-site laundry, bicycle storage, and an elevator.
Final exterior work is wrapping up on Casa Durango, a five-story mixed-use building located at 1850 S Racine Avenue in Pilsen. The developer, known as The Resurrection Project, has planned for 1,610 square feet of retail and 37 affordable residential units. The project name “Casa Durango” actually embodies two separate construction project, the other being an affordable 16-unit, three-story building to the southwest at 2010 S Ashland Avenue.
