City Gardens puts green space at the center of community life in this near west side Chicago development. The complex includes 76 apartments housed in eight 3-story buildings, along with a separate management center surrounded by a community garden, children’s play area, picnic area, recycling center and much-needed passive open green space. The rents will be tiered for a mix of income levels, with over 60% of the units targeted to families earning no more than 60% of the area median income.
