The Community Ventures Program offers a hearty congratulations to Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation, which fought long and hard in close partnership with the Logan Square Neighborhood Association (LSNA) to launch Zapata Apartments.
Bickerdike, with help and support from many financial institutions and community partners, and with an early predevelopment loan from JCUA, is developing 61 units of affordable housing after several years of planning. The development will provide affordable homes to families in three new buildings in Humboldt Park for low-income members of the community.
JCUA’s CVP is a proud partner on this important, long-awaited development, which broke ground on Sept. 13, 2011.
