This is part of CHA's Ida B Wells land. Just like all the other old CHA projects (Cabrini, Robert Taylor, ABLA, Ickes, Rockwell, Horner, etc) this one was stalled half-completed a decade ago with very little progress since then.

It's amazing that, with such a hue and cry about affordable housing in Chicago right now, CHA is sitting on hundreds of acres of vacant land in decent locations.
