Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) is planning to build a residential community in Chicago, Illinois, the US.

The project involves the construction of residential community with around 1,116 housing units across 12.9ha of land. It will be implemented in phases.

The first phase worth US$75 million includes the redevelopment of buildings north of Diversey Parkway.

The project includes the construction of a convenience store, a coffee shop, a sports pub, a pet day–care facility, a clubhouse, a spa, a swimming pool, parking spaces and related facilities.

In January 2010, CHA issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) for selecting a master developer and a team to revitalize the area.

In December 2011, a team of five industry-leading Chicago-based real estate developers has been selected to revitalize the 72-year-old Lathrop Homes development on Chicago’s Near North Side.

Lathrop Community Partners was named as master developer for the project by CHA and the Lathrop Homes Working Group. The team includes Related Midwest, Magellan Development Group, Heartland Housing Inc., Bickerdike Redevelopment Corp and Ardmore Associates.

In 2012, a series of public hearings were held by the developers to announce a formal redevelopment plan.

In August 2013, the master developers have issued a final draft for the redevelopment plan with three possible scenarios for community discussions.

The Lathrop Homes planning and design team includes Studio Gang Architects, bKL Architecture, Farr Associates, Wolff Landscape Architects, and Bauer Latoza Studio.

In August 2014, the developer team unveiled initial rendering for the redevelopment master plan with two buildings designed by bKL Architecture. The new six-story buildings are located at the Northwest and Southwest corners of Diversey, Clybourn and Damen Avenues and will include studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. The Northern and Southern cover 8,249.79m2 and 12,727.71m2 area each.

In February 2016, CHA secured approvals from Chicago Planning Commission.
