Lathrop, a mixed-income housing site along the Chicago River, is hosting a community celebration! Come join Lathrop Community Partners, MPC, Friends of the Chicago River and community members as we tour the new facilities and campus. Lathrop was move-in ready in Fall 2018, designed to offer a mix of public, affordable and market rate housing within a redesigned floor plan that preserved its historic architecture. It's only been a year since residents have returned and now the landscape is ready as well with a recently completed Boat Launch and Chicago River trail. Now is the perfect opportunity to experience how this site is increasing public access to our city's natural environment through creating new riverfront amenities for the neighborhood.
As part of the Our Great Rivers grant, funded by the Chicago Community Trust, Heartland Housing, in partnership with Related Midwest and Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation, have been providing programming for the Lathrop community. This event is part of a commitment to help residents connect with the city's river. Come join us for this neighborhood gathering!
