Park Boulevard Building T Dedication

HUD Secretary Castro speaks at new residential development in Chicago


Today US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and 3rd Ward Alderman Pat Dowell spoke at the building dedication for the latest addition to Park Boulevard, the redevelopment of the demolished Stateway Gardens public housing high-rise complex.  VOA’s Building T is a 72-unit rental apartment building providing one- and two-bedroom apartments and 1:1 parking for a mix of market-rate, affordable and CHA housing residents. Secretary Castro spoke of the power of such projects to change lives, and Mayor Emanuel remarked that good affordable housing is but one part of the broader need to build vital communities, supported by public transportation, retail centers, schools and businesses. VOA team members (Bill Ketcham, Eric Stanley, Breah Page and Ben Buehrle) are proud of their work on Building T as well as Buildings J, M and N, all of which will be completed this spring. Park Boulevard buildings have waiting lists for tenants and will likely be completely occupied very soon.
