Stateway Gardens Public Housing

Provided conceptual site plan recommendations for this 33-acre Chicago Housing Authority site on the city's Southside. The 1,644 units in eight high-rise buildings were completed in 1958 and were eventually demolished in 2000 after the buildings and grounds fell into disrepair and as crime escalated. Phased new construction has begun. Recommendations included mid-rise housing along extended streets and manageable open spaces. Development: Chicago Housing Authority
