The project represents the first CHA investment in Rogers Park in decades

This afternoon, Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined representatives from the Chicago Housing Authority and Three Corners Development to break ground on a seven-story development at the corner of Sheridan Road and Devon Avenue in the Rogers Park neighborhood.

Known as ‘The Concord at Sheridan,’ the mixed-use project will feature 111 apartments above 30,000 square feet of retail space. According to the city, 65 of the project’s residential units will be supported by CHA’s Property Rental Assistance program while the remainder would be offered at market rate.

Though being heralded as a transit-oriented development, the title might seem a bit counterintuitive given the project’s 125 below-ground vehicular spaces. The parking, however, will also be utilized by shoppers visiting the building’s primarily retail anchor—a 23,000-square-foot Target store.

First revealed to the public in January of this year, the Concord at Sheridan development was approved by the Chicago Plan Commission in May and was awarded its first construction permit in September. Building design comes from Chicago’s GREC Architects.

In addition to attending today’s shiny shovel ceremony, 49th Ward Alderman Joe Moore plans to host a construction logistics meeting for residents on Tuesday, December 5th at 5:00 p.m. at the Heartland Health Center at 1300 W. Devon. Representatives from the developer and project contractor will appear before the community to lay out their timetable and staging expectations for each step of the construction process.
