Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood is embarking on a transformation with the groundbreaking of Lakeview Landing, an affordable housing development at 835 W. Addison spearheaded by the Lakeview Lutheran Church.

Designed by Weese Langley Weese Architects, the six-story development will include 37 residential units and ground-floor religious assembly space. Rising 69 feet high, the dwellings inside will be disability-accessible affordable rental units. Units will be 575-sq. ft. , fully accessible one-bedrooms for residents with income at or below 30 percent AMI and accessibility needs.

Power & Sons Construction of Gary, Indiana is the general contractor and Quality Excavation is the demolition contractor.

The development will enable mobility-impaired adults to live independently with assistance from a  resident service program that provides many quality of life and concierge services.

The building will model an independent apartment building but be customized to be universally-designed and barrier-free, far exceeding current ADA standards. Specific features will include roll-in showers, pull-under sinks, accessible appliances, lower switches/outlets, windows and door handles. It will also incorporate a variety of common space and market rate amenities.
