The former Viceroy Hotel on the Near West Side was converted into 89 affordable housing units with on-site social services for low-income renters by Heartland Housing Inc. in partnership with First Baptist Congressional Church. The six-story structure, which originally opened in 1930 as the Union Park Hotel, was designated an official City of Chicago landmark in 2010. Office space, a coffee shop, community garden and adjacent parking are included in the $23 million project.
