Nineteen vacant lots in the heart of Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood have been transformed into Keystone Place, 69 units of affordable rental housing near Mamie Till-Mobley Park and the broad expanse of midway greenspace that runs along the southern border of the University of Chicago campus. The small-scale buildings in this family-friendly development house bright, roomy apartments, featuring three and four bedrooms, and all keyed to low and moderate-income families.
