Part of the Chicago Housing Authority's historic "Plan for Transformation", this former public housing site has been transformed into an exciting mixed income community that combines a variety of housing types. Westhaven’s 550 units of mixed-income housing range from a multi-story condominium building to townhomes and two and three-flat buildings interspersed throughout the 26-acre site. An array of green features foster sustainability and a sense of community, from green roofs to a beloved community garden that has helped inspire connections and friendships among the many residents who share in its upkeep. Westhaven Park has received numerous awards including the Multifamily Executive Magazine's "Mixed Income Project of the Year" in 2005, and the City of Chicago’s "Outstanding For-Profit Neighborhood Real Estate Project" in 2006.
