The ordinance addresses the potential gentrification of the neighborhood due to the Obama Presidential Center.

“We are standing here today because we have listened to the community, we have made sure the work that we have done reflects the lived experience of people in this community, and we are here to deliver the first of many projects that are gonna come to the benefit of the people in Woodlawn, and I’m extraordinarily proud of that” said Mayor Lightfoot.

The new development comprises 58 apartment homes, 41 of which will serve low-income households.
