Town Hall Apartments

Chicago, Illinois

This mixed-use senior housing facility includes street-level retail, parking and 79 apartments and is an adaptive reuse of the historic decommissioned Town Hall police station. Developed jointly by Heartland Housing and the Center on Halsted, Town Hall Apartments showcase the concept of “aging in place,” that is, being able to age happily within the community of your choice. The facility fills an important need in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood not only because it provides much-needed, affordable housing for senior LGBTQ residents, but because it helps knit together an entire city block, including the Gensler-designed Center on Halsted, within the surrounding community.
