Background  

Cabrini Extension North includes approximately 18 acres of land on the city’s Near North Side.  In 1994, CHA was awarded a $50 million HOPE VI Grant to facilitate the redevelopment of the Cabrini Extension North site.  In 1996, the City of Chicago created the Near North Redevelopment Initiative (“NNRI”) that served as a general guide for the redevelopment activities. The Near North redevelopment area is bounded by Halsted Street to the west, North Avenue to the north, Orleans Street to the east, and Chicago Avenue to the south.   The 1997 HOPE VI Revitalization Plan and the NNRI called for the construction of 2,000 to 3,000 new housing units, a new police station, two new schools, expansion/improvements of existing parks, a new public library, a new shopping center, and improvements to infrastructure.  Of the total number of housing units, 700 units will be built for CHA leaseholders in good standing on land throughout the Near North area.  CHA began acquiring units in 2002 at off-site properties and began the construction of Parkside of Old Town in 2006 on CHA land, which will be completed over several phases.
