From the architect. Rosa Parks Apartments consists of the development of 94 affordable rental apartments in 8 buildings scattered across 21 city lots in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago. In order to achieve an economy of scale and affordability, the buildings vary from 6 to 27 units and are all a variation on a theme of the same modular facade. Only 2 types of windows are used throughout the development, and scattered 1 and 2-story colored bays project from the front and rear of the buildings—adding definition to their facades.

All of the buildings are built of 8” thick precast concrete walls with engineering wood trusses at floors and roof. Thin brick is cast into the precast at the street facades. At the sides and rear of the buildings the precast was formed with a brick pattern liner and painted. 6 of the 8 buildings are 3 stories tall, and the remaining 2 are 4-story elevator buildings. 20% of the apartments provided are fully accessible or adaptable.

All the buildings in this development have gone through the City of Chicago Green Permit process. The largest building (27 Units) is LEED Gold Certified.
