From the Chicago Defender:
Chicago Housing Authority officials today joined Evergreen Real Estate Group, the City of Chicago Department of Housing and the community to celebrate the opening of Independence Apartments, a mixed-income apartment building that brings affordable housing for seniors to the Northwest Side.
The apartment building at 4022 N. Elston Avenue provides 30 CHA apartments for renters from the CHA waiting list and 14 apartments at affordable rents and combines quality housing for seniors with a new Chicago Public Library (CPL) Independence Branch library that serves building residents and the entire community.
“It is extremely gratifying to see how our efforts to create new housing opportunities and community amenities are so well received,” said CHA Chief Development Officer Ann McKenzie. “We knew from the outset of this project that this innovative co-located development would have an important impact – not just on the seniors who will benefit from the new housing, but also the neighbors who use the library.”
