Check this out: “New Harvest” Low Income Housing in Chicago

This is some inspiration for businesses to choose the right projects to work on. Landon Bone Baker Architects, in Chicago, is a great company to follow.

They partnered with First Baptist Congregational church and Heartland Housing to not only restore, but also to reinvent the Union Park Hotel built in the 1930’s (most recently known as Viceroy Hotel).

The building will now be used as low-income housing for previously homeless individuals and for women who have recently left the Illinois prison system. The property will include a community garden / urban farm, teaching kitchen, community art project, social enterprise café, community chicken coop, composting bins, green roof tray system, and solar thermal system.
