Ironwood Court

Location: Chicago

Type: Preservation: Restoration & Rehab
Use: Residential Rental, 46 Units
Cost: $6 million
Status: Complete 2011

This attractive, century-old, 46-unit blond brick courtyard building in Chicago’s Washington Park community is emblematic of much of the neighborhood’s housing which is stately and eminently worthy of preservation, but in much need of a facelift. NSP funds for Ironwood Court supported the transformation of a foreclosed and shop-worn architectural gem into a welcoming mixture of spacious and affordable two, three and four-bedroom apartments. The property's amenities include a family-friendly community room with an adjoining playlot, along with extensive renovation of the grounds, creating a visual and civic asset that buttresses revitalization efforts throughout the surrounding community.
