Case Studies

HEARTLAND HOUSING DEVELOPS SUPPORTIVE HOUSING THAT FOSTERS COMMUNITY THROUGH RESIDENT INPUT.

We carefully consider the environmental impact of our work by using sustainable building practices and green building materials. Our historic renovations preserve the integrity of our buildings while also meeting the current and future needs of our residents.

Harvest Commons

Harvest Commons—A fresh start for the Viceroy Hotel

Harvest Commons was formerly one of the worst transient hotels plagued with crime and unsanitary living conditions. Heartland Housing rehabbed the building into a historically preserved, sustainable development with 89 units for residents who have previously experienced homelessness.

 

Town Hall Apartments—From a place of degradation to a place of honor

Town Hall police station was a symbol of police discrimination against the surrounding gay community during the 1970s and 80s. Town Hall Apartments transforms the landmark building into Chicago’s first welcoming affordable housing development that is inclusive of all seniors, including the LGBTQ community.

 Hollywood House

Hollywood House—Preserving affordable housing amid economic downturn

As an existing affordable housing building for seniors that had fallen into serious disrepair, Hollywood House was a prime candidate to be converted into condos and displace its residents. Heartland Housing thoughtfully rehabbed and preserved 197 units of affordable housing for seniors.
