CHA’s Britton Budd Apartments redevelopment
Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on April 4, 2009
The Britton Budd Apartments is an 11 story building that was used by the Chicago Housing Authority as affordable housing for seniors up until the summer of 2005 when the apartments were closed for renovation. The Britton Budd Apartments are located in my neighborhood at 501 W. Surf Street and since I’ve lived in Chicago, I’ve always noticed how beautiful but also creepy the building is. Check out the Tribune article about the redevelopment.
The Will Group, Inc. and Walsh Construction are working to completely replace all pipes, boilers, windows, restorationof the terra cotta facade, renovation of 171 units, and even brand new landscaping. It’ll be interesting to see how the street life changes once the building opens up too.
