This holistically designed, master planned community, implemented with guidance from local grassroots stakeholders, emerged from the 140 acres that once comprised the troubled Robert Taylor public housing project in Chicago’s historic Bronzeville community. Clusters of interlocking “neighborhood” developments stake out freestanding identities that converge within the context of the larger community. The overall effort includes the reconstruction and restoration of the city-street grid, new schools, community facilities, parks and beautifully designed homes and apartments. Legends South’s Savoy Square was named a 2011 Project of the Year in the mixed-income category by Multifamily Executive Magazine. Download Pdf
