City to acquire North Lawndale land to support INVEST South/West


A vacant, 2,600-sq.-ft. lot in North Lawndale would be authorized for acquisition by the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) under a proposal introduced to City Council.

Located at 3410 W. Ogden Ave., the privately-owned lot would be combined with adjacent city-owned land to support a request for proposals (RFP) issued by DPD late last year.

Developer responses to the RFP are due on March 30, 2021. A selected developer is expected to be announced later this year.

The city’s acquisition authority would only be utilized if the selected developer is unable to finalize a purchase agreement with the site’s owners.

The Community Development Commission approved the city’s acquisition authority last fall as part of mayor Light’s INVEST South/West commercial corridor improvement strategy for the South and West sides.
