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.
