Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Alderman David Moore (17th), Deputy Mayor Samir Mayekar, DPD Commissioner Maurice Cox and several other local leaders participated in the ground breaking for the INVEST South/West project in Auburn Gresham.
The event took place August 24th, included many local residents, business owners, and community leaders, and was the first INVEST South/West project to begin construction. The initial one-site project expanded to two parcels, roughly one block apart, after significant community engagement activities and participation in planning.
Congratulations to the entire development team: Evergreen Real Estate Group, Imagine Development, Ross Barney Architects, Nia Architects and GMA Construction.
Special thanks to the CCAC team that developed the original RFP: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Fifield Companies, Callison RTKL, Level-1 Global Solutions, and Praedium Valuation Group.
Additional INVEST South/West ground breakings are expected approximately one per month through the end of the year.
