The Grant at Woodlawn Park

Thursday, November 21, 2013



Today, November 21, 2013 Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) and Alderman Willie B. Cochran celebrates the opening of The Grant at Woodlawn Park, a 33-unit mixed-income rental apartment building that is the second phase of the Woodlawn Park redevelopment and the latest chapter in Woodlawn’s renaissance. 

“With the completion of The Grant at Woodlawn Park, we have now replaced three full blocks of the long troubled Grove Parc Plaza Apartments, with even more work scheduled to begin soon. With its mix of residences, retail and community amenities, Woodlawn Park is an exciting and important foundation for the vitality of the neighborhood. POAH's work supports the South East Chicago Commission's (SECC) initiatives in reenergizing growth, sustainability, and attraction of desirable businesses to the Woodlawn retail corridors.”

Thank you to all of our Woodlawn residents and neighbors.  We appreciate everyone who attended the opening ceremonies of this phenomenal endeavor.
