A combiniation of mid-rise, six- and nine-story buildings make up this 16-acre development just north of the Illinois Institute of Technology. Located on State Street between 27th and 30th streets, development for Dearborn Homes is historical as the first CHA building to have an elevator in 1950. Relocation of area residents that same year, motivated the Authority to establish a Relocation Department, which is still active today. Currently, Dearborn Homes is receiving exterior, interior and infrastructure updates under the Plan for Transformation.


Only residents who were living in CHA developments as of October 1, 1999, and have remained lease-compliant are eligible to live at this property.  The CHA is currently not accepting new applicants at any of its family properties.  Eligible CHA relocatees should contact their relocation manager for more information.
