CHA Board awards contract for Roosevelt Square Community Center updates

The Chicago Housing Authority Board approved Tuesday a $4.5 million contract for the modernization of a University Village development’s community center.

Under the action, All Chicago, Inc. will make updates to the Jane Addams Community Center at 1254 Loomis St. in the CHA’s Roosevelt Square mixed-income development. The updates would allow the CHA to move property management and security operations currently housed in an adjacent building into the community center. CHA then plans to raze the adjacent building to make way for future development.

The Chicago Housing Authority Board green lighted Tuesday selling 13.2 acres of the former Robert Taylor Homes site to a South Side tennis and recreation company amid concerns that CHA residents were not properly consulted about the sale.

CHA gets $2 million under the deal from XS Tennis Village, which will build indoor courts, a fitness center, and classrooms. The acquired land at 53rd and State streets in the Bronzeville neighborhood has sat vacant for the last decade, due to CHA's demolition of the famous public housing site.
