CDC signs off on property-sale for mixed-income housing at former Robert Taylor site

The Community Development Commission on Tuesday approved the sale of city-owned property to a developer that will create 71 mixed-income housing units on the former site of the Robert Taylor Homes in Bronzeville.

Under the Chicago Housing Authority’s Plan for Transformation, four new developments – Hansbury Square, Savoy Square, Coleman Place and Mahalia Place – have been constructed since 2000 to replace the Robert Taylor site.

The commission’s action on Tuesday paves the way for the fifth phase of the redevelopment project, dubbed Legends South.
