Structured Development, Evergreen Real Estate Group Open 48-Unit Mixed-Income Apartment Complex in Chicago
CHICAGO — Structured Development and Evergreen Real Estate Group have opened Schiller Place Apartments on Chicago’s Near North Side. The mixed-income apartment complex consists of 48 units across three buildings. Located immediately south of Structured’s NEWCITY development on land that was formerly home to the Isham YMCA, Schiller Place is fully leased.
There are six market-rate units, 24 reserved for Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) residents, 13 set aside for households earning up to 60 percent of the area median income (AMI) and five reserved for those who earn up to 30 percent of AMI. Five of the units have been earmarked for veterans and five will house individuals sourced through the Statewide Referral Network, which works with households earning up to 30 percent of AMI with a head of household who has a disability or illness.
The project team included GMA Construction and architecture firm Bailey Edward.
Funding for Schiller Place included federal 4 percent Low-Income Housing Tax Credits awarded by the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) and syndicated by Hudson Housing Capital. IHDA also awarded Illinois Affordable Housing Tax Credits that were syndicated by Clocktower Tax Credits and sponsored by Housing and Human Development Corp., which will provide onsite social services to residents. IHDA provided a permanent loan from the Illinois Affordable Housing Trust Fund. IFF provided predevelopment financing and CIBC Bank provided construction financing.
