Chicago Housing Authority breaks ground on next phase of Roosevelt Square

CHICAGO (CBS)– The Chicago Housing Authority breaks ground on the next phase at Roosevelt Square.

CHA officials were joined by city and community leaders for the ceremony Monday morning. 

The new 162-acre development on Chicago’s Near West Side will include over 200 homes and over 300 affordable apartments.

Project leaders say its a big step in breaking down housing segregation in the city in hopes of bringing people back to build a stronger community.

"This is a $172 million project that’s being invested in this city, in this community, in affordable housing, and in families who live here. That is something to celebrate," Traci Scott said. 

Project leaders say their goal is for Roosevelt Square to be a diverse mixed income community with more than just housing, but also quality public schools, outdoor recreation and grocery stores.
