New Construction Cabrini Green ChicagoThe former site of the old Cabrini-Green housing project could soon see new development. Developers hope to bring in a mixed-income project of nearly 500 residential units to the corner of Larrabee Street and Clybourn Avenue.

Developers recently filed a zoning application with the city to turn the wedge-shaped land into an 18-story tower followed by two mid-rise apartment buildings and townhouses. While around 200 of the residences would be market rate apartments and townhomes, another 80 or so would be affordable-rate and the rest would go to those on waiting lists for the Chicago Housing Authority.

While the land in question once belonged to the Near North Career Metropolitan High School, public housing towers also once stood in the area. They

Just a couple of blocks away, yet another plan involves constructing a complex of six buildings in East Pilsen. The opportunity includes using mostly vacant land in the area, and transforming it into five buildings filled with more

The first phase of Lincoln Yards aims to bring new office buildings, parking and retail space to the area. The larger plan also calls for new infrastructure to support the massive complex, including new bridges over the Chicago River.
