Development will transform Chicago public housing into luxury condos

October 01, 2007 |

Located on Chicago's Near West Side, the new Roosevelt Square development will offer affordable housing and market-rate and luxury units in a neighborhood setting. Encompassing more than 100 acres, the community is a redevelopment of the Chicago Housing Authority's ABLA homes, one of the city's largest public housing complexes. McShane Construction, Rosemont, Ill., and architect Macondo Corp., Chicago, will team up for the second phase of the project, which includes the construction of two 45-unit, 70,000-sf condominium buildings, scheduled for completion in October 2008. Also in store for the development: a green roof with an array of plants and foliage.
