This affordable housing project is a significant part of the continuing revitalization of Oak Park.
To mark the re-connection of the site to the community, the project features active, pedestrian oriented retail shops that focus on a “living room” at the courtyard the corner of MLK and Broadway. The streets are lined with landscaping providing a comfortable and welcoming pedestrian environment.
Designed to improve the sense of safety, the project activates the street frontage with ground floor retail. By providing over thirty units with windows and balconies that front directly on the street, much needed life is given to the neighborhood.
The building is designed to maximize comfort and health for the senior occupants. Features such as south facing sunshades, natural day lighting, flow through ventilation and ample community spaces, make the project both comfortable and energy efficient.
