This mixed-use building is a collaboration between the Chicago Public Library, Chicago Housing Authority, and developer Evergreen Real Estate Group, and is one of three such projects across the city. It combines a neighborhood library branch with affordable senior housing above. The architect for the Independence Branch was John Ronan Architects. Representatives from both the developer and architectural team will lead the tour of this recently completed project.
Learn about best practices in senior housing and new models of community integrated senior housing. We will also discuss the challenges of design senior housing as part of a larger, mixed use, urban project.
Meet at the apartment entrance.
