The Grant at Woodlawn Park, Chicago, IL

The previously existing distressed Section 8 complex included 504 units that were demolished in phases and replaced with a total of 404 units rebuilt as a mixed-income community over a four-year construction period. The development mix includes affordable, market-rate, and elderly housing as well as commercial and recreational components.

Woodlawn Park will also be a green development with the first phase, The Jackson, pursuing LEED Silver certification. Pedestrian friendly streetscapes with transit oriented goals, low carbon footprints and other environmentally sensitive building contributions will emphasize Woodlawn Park’s commitment to sustainability.
