The South Side neighborhood of Woodlawn is starting to receive a lot of attention.
The long-overlooked community won the 2016 Curbed Cup for Chicago, a reader poll that pits neighborhoods against each other in terms of popularity and development, and now a real estate developer is preparing to break ground on a series of single family homes.
Greenline Development is planning an $8.8 million project that would construct seven green single family homes on land that was owned by the city at the intersection of Marquette Road and Dorchester Avenue. When completed, they're expected to list for $389,900. They're fairly unique in the city, as they'll be closer to the city's median home price than much of what we're seeing in development, which is primarily geared toward the higher-end buyer.
