From the Chicago Housing Authority's press release:
The Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), 43rd Ward Ald. Michele Smith and representatives from Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) and CHA co-development partner PIRHL Developers hosted a groundbreaking for the new Sheffield of Lincoln Park family building and the renovation of the Edith Spurlock Sampson Apartments and Annex Tuesday.
The $150 million project will turn an aging senior development into a vibrant mixed-income community with new features and amenities. The project includes the renovation of two existing, 394-unit senior buildings, and the addition of a brand new “bridge” building that will include 80 new family units. It is expected to be completed in 2024.
“CHA is here to help people, whether they are younger, older or in between,” CEO Tracey Scott said. “This innovative project will assist a large range of age groups, while also turning this area into an affordable, multi-generational mixed-income living and community space. We are so grateful to all our partners who made this effort possible.”
