  2. Lathrop Homes – developer presentation and community input
    Plans for the redevelopment of this large tract of land, located at Diversey and Clybourn, are now being presented throughout the community.

    Three plans are currently being floated with up to over 1,600 units, high rise towers between 12 and 28 stories, some or no preservation of the historic structures and up to 70,000 sq.ft. of retail space.

    Current plans do not really address the percentage of units devoted to low-income, affordable and/or market-rate housing.  Alderman Waguespak feels the need for community involvement and opinion is now.

    Kerry Dickson, senior VP with Related Midwest, a member of the Lathrop’s redevelopment consortium, will appear to present the current plans to SLN.

    There will be membership vote following the presentation. The results will be provided to Ald. Waguespack.
