Mayor Emanuel attends opening of Harvest Commons

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel attended the re-opening of a building recently renovated by Heartland Housing which now provides 89 units of supportive housing. Mayor Emanuel spoke of the development in the context of his “Neighborhoods Now”  initiative as a way to be inclusive of current residents while developing and their neighborhood. Further plans for area surrounding the Harvest Commons development include improvements to the Damen “L” stop, renovations to Union Park, and as Alderman Burnett, Jr. of the 27th ward pointed out, potential plans with the nearby United Center.
