Bronzeville Lakefront

This mixed-use district on Chicago’s lakefront features new streets and public spaces stitching together office, housing, retail, cultural, educational and civic uses. Three new landscaped bridges surrounded by work spaces will connect pedestrians to the lakefront. An improved 27th Street station and proposed 31st Street station will provide transit access. Terraced, interconnected buildings create an identity for the highly-visible site with unobstructed views of Lake Michigan. An extended Cottage Grove Avenue becomes the community’s commercial corridor.
