The plans also call for five six-story buildings: one on Roosevelt, two on Ashland, and two on 15th Street near Ashland. A proposal to build two five-story rental buildings on Roosevelt in 2012 met with community opposition at that time, leading to further delays in new construction.

...remain unchanged. Three community gardens would remain. A proposed L-shaped park planned south of Taylor west of Lytle Street probably would become housing...

The UVA also called for a new Chicago Public Library to replace the Roosevelt Branch at 1101 W. Taylor St., which is located outside the Roosevelt Square boundaries.

UVA members feel the current library is too small. The association has recommended building the new library at the southwest corner of Taylor Street and Racine Avenue within the Roosevelt Square boundaries.

    February 6, 2016 By Susan S. Stevens New plans for the next phase of Roosevelt Square have received mixed reviews from community groups, although they agree they want to see redevelopment of the former ABLA Homes site resumed after a hiatus caused by the housing market crash.

  • The new Roosevelt Sq. master plan is a very good one. I'm glad that Connecting4Communities worked so hard to get a new master plan developed and that the planning team worked so hard to collect so much public input.
