First Phase of Affordable Townhome Community Complete in East Garfield Park
Structured Development joined Ald. Walter Burnett Jr., representatives from the Chicago Community Land Trust (CCLT) and other project partners for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of the first phase of Harrison Row Townhomes, a new community that will ultimately include as many as 50 affordable for-sale townhomes at Harrison and Francisco streets in Chicago’s East Garfield Park neighborhood. Work is now complete on the first seven Harrison Row residences, which feature three-bedroom, 2½-bath plans averaging 1,200 square feet and priced from $229,000. Built under Chicago’s Affordable Requirements Ordinance (ARO) and reserved for households earning up to 120 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI), the townhomes create homeownership opportunities for low-income and working-class families. Three of the residences are already under contract, with anticipated move-ins later this month. Harrison Row is located a mile north of Mount Sinai Hospital and less than 2 miles west of the Illinois Medical District, University of Illinois at Chicago and other major employers. The CTA Blue Line and several bus routes are within walking distance of the community, which is just south of the Eisenhower Expressway, further enhancing accessibility.
