Englewood Gardens: plan

Project Location: Chicago, IL

The large parcel of land at the corner of W. 63rd Street and S. Halsted Avenue in Chicago is in desperate need of redevelopment. This plan detail is a portion of a larger urban design plan, and includes community garden plots, a fruit tree orchard on a formal grid, and a community center housed in a converted fire house. The programming and land use is focused on the health of the community in the broader sense, including plants, animals and soil, as well as humans. Top objectives: provide access to fresh food, create affordable housing, build community and enrich lives through educational opportunities.
