Thanks for your feedback. We are continuing to work with our design committee to make sure the building is attractive and interesting. The earlier rendering was for a building with metal siding and the angles showed more of a green roof. It turns out we need to use most of the roof for solar panels, so that may be what changed. The building is designed as three stories and 43 units - it isn't large by any means, but we are restricted by parking and financing to keep it all affordable.

Thank you for taking the time to post this – we are continuously seeking more voices to help guide this development and we welcome your involvement. We are planning for the development to benefit legacy residents as owners and tenants and by bringing additional services to the neighborhood. We know how hard neighborhood stakeholders and groups like the Garfield Park Coalition for Affordability and Stability are working to counter displacement and we support those efforts as well. Phase 2 will have a community ownership structure. We are working hard so that when completed, this development will complement the good work being done by your group and others to protect and benefit the residents of the neighborhood.
