Revitalizing Chicago’s Near West Side

The renovation of the building currently known as Harvest Commons is an important piece in revitalizing the struggling Eisenhower Corridor neighborhood on Chicago’s Near West Side. The building, developed by Heartland Housing, will provide 89 units of low-income housing for struggling Chicagoans. Mayor Rahm Emanuel spoke at the re-opening of the renovated building and touched on the plans to infuse an additional $160 million into the neighborhood with improvements to nearby CTA stops and Union Park.
