Background information for the Logan Square community workshops

Steven Vance

Logan Square station plaza, where there's big potential for new development.

We've put together some introductory materials so you can learn about the two sites we'll be looking at for our three-part workshop process in Logan Square, plus relevant topics like affordable housing and tax-increment financing.

Check out the PDFs below. The "Prompt Posters," which include information about affordable housing, space under the tracks and more, were created in association with Gensler Architects and the Illinois Institute of Technology.

Learn about the Bicentennial Plan for altering the traffic circulation in Logan Square, and find out more information about the demographic profiles of the Avondale and Logan Square community areas, courtesy of the Rehab Network.
