A Chicago Sun-Times story
City officials Wednesday backed a $48.4 million mixed-income housing development, hoping it will revitalize a stretch of East 63rd Street in Woodlawn.
The 70-unit development would be built at the southeast corner of 63rd and Ellis Avenue on city-owned vacant land. Terms have to be worked out, but officials endorsed the concept offered by Preservation of Affordable Housing and KMW Communities.
Called Woodlawn Social, the project would produce a six-story, 60-unit rental building that would be mostly affordable under city rules. Developers also plan a four-story building with 10 units for sale at market rates along Ellis Avenue.
