Legends South A3

Affordable + Mixed-Income Housing

IN PROGRESS

Legends South is one of the City of Chicago’s most ambitious efforts to revitalize public housing that, once completed, will include 2,400 mixed income rental and affordable homeownership units. Under the Chicago Housing Authority’s “Plan for Transformation,” LBBA previously completed Hansberry Square (Phase A-1) and Savoy Square (Phase A-2). These initial phases at Legends South reconnected the former Robert Taylor Homes site to the street grid by adding new streets, scaling the blocks for more comfortable walking distances, and establishing a variety of public, semi-public, and private courtyard spaces. 


This latest phase, the development’s 6th, will be located on an L-shaped site at S. State Street and W. 45th Street. The new development will include a 4-story, 40-unit corridor building with approximately 3,750 square feet of commercial space designed by LBBA and two three-story walk ups designed by Brook Architecture.
