A 4.5-acre site at the western terminus of the 606 Trail in Logan Square was approved for acquisition today by City Council for a new park and affordable housing project.
Acquisition authority will enable the city to finalize a purchase price with the current owner, the Trust for Public Land. Once acquired, a 144,000-square-foot building on the site will be demolished and the site prepared for park and residential uses that could include approximately 150 affordable units.
The Community Development Commission approved the acquisition in February.
