“We are extremely excited about the Park Boulevard project. At Centerline, we continuously look to identify affordable housing deals that are attractive to our investors and also make a significant impact on the communities where they exist.

There will be 46 public housing units and 54 non-public housing units restricted to residents earning less than 60 percent of AMI and 29 units will be unrestricted market-rate units.

“What attracted us to this particular transaction was the scope of the project‑outstanding real estate fundamentals, top quality units at such affordable rates and a strong development team. All of this combined with tremendous public support made it a highly attractive opportunity,” notes Eric Trucksess, managing director at Centerline Capital Group.

The project will be developed by a team including: The Davis Group, Stateway Associates and Walsh Construction. “The developers have extensive experience, broad knowledge and expertise in developing, financing and managing real estate in Chicago,” says Trucksess.
