Chicago Announcements June 16, 2021

The Chicago Department of Planning and Development selected developer The Community Builders as the winner of its C40 Reinventing Cities competition to redevelop a city-owned property at the corner of Van Buren Street and Plymouth Court. The developer will build a 20-story, 207-unit affordable apartment building on the site, becoming the “first net-zero, all-affordable high-rise" in the city’s history, according to a Tuesday announcement. The Community Builders will buy the site from the city for $1 before undertaking the $102 million development. Designed by Studio Gang, the building will achieve LEED Zero Energy Certification.
