In partnership with Chicago’s Near West Side Community Development Corporation (Near West Side CDC), this project represents our development group’s commitment to community needs. The development utilized two former Chicago Housing Authority projects, and through a total gut-renovation, we created special-needs housing for low-income heads of households with children.  

The existing buildings were built between 1950 and 1960, and now provide 25 affordable special-needs units. Spaulding and Trumbull, together with its on-site service program, is designed to break the cycle of chronic poverty by providing, intentionally in this order: housing, a stable living environment, and employment. The comprehensive program is designed to create stability for families to become healthy as they move toward economic independence. The Near West Side CDC provides supportive services to tenants, while the property management implements its own Blended Housing Management Program.
