Chicago to build 44 affordable housing units in West Garfield Park


Chicago Construction News staff writer

Chicago’s department of housing will issue up to $13.5 million in tax exempt bonds to support the development of CARE Manor, a four-story building with 44 housing units affordable to those at 60 per cent AMI and below in the West Garfield Park community.

The city will also provide up to $11.5 million in multi-family loan funds.

Spearheaded by United for Better Living in partnership with Corinthian Temple Church of God in Christ, the project will contribute to the city’s plan to expand affordable housing options on Chicago’s west side.

CARE Manor at 4531-55 W. Washington Blvd. is designed to blend with the neighborhood’s existing architectural style and 100% of the units are adaptable – half of them designed to accommodate individuals with physical disabilities. The site will also have 22 parking spaces and will also build a range of amenities including a community room equipped with a kitchen, a management office and on-site laundry facilities.

CARE Manor is a ministry of the Corinthian Temple Church of God in Christ and will sit directly across the street from the church’s community center.
