CHICAGO-The first phase of a redevelopment of the Robert Taylor Homes will be a 253-unit $50-million single-family and multifamily project near 40th and State streets. The last of the once-notorious Chicago Housing Authority buildings are being demolished as part of the agency’s $1.5-billion Plan for Transformation.

Construction of 190 multifamily rental units is scheduled to begin in May, Brinshore Development LLC SVP Peter Levavi tells GlobeSt.com, with completion expected in late 2005. Construction of the 63 for-sale single-family and townhouse units is scheduled to begin in September 2004, he adds, with completion expected in early 2006.

The first phase of the Robert Taylor Homes redevelopment will be built on a 12.2-acre site where one of three 16-story buildings still stands.

The redevelopment of the Robert Taylor Homes, a string of high-rise buildings on the east bank of the Dan Ryan Expressway, is being done by a joint venture including Brinshore Development LLC and Michaels Development Co. The first phase of their redevelopment project was recommended for approval recently by the city’s plan commission.

Although the buildings will not include basements, the design provides accessibility for handicapped owners and renters in all units, Levavi says.
