Although the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) is moving forward with its plan to redevelop the massive Lathrop Homes public housing project, the few residents that remain are fighting to save their community. The CHA plans on replacing most of the existing Lathrop Homes buildings with new ones that will offer mixed-income housing, but with real estate prices increasing, residents that are displaced likely won't be able to afford to stay in the area.
