Sangamon Terrace Apartments, A New-Construction Affordable Senior Housing Community, Opens Amid Englewood Revitalization in Chicago, IL


Sangamon Terrace Apartments, Englewood Neighborhood,
Chicago, IL
CHICAGO, IL –  Evergreen Real Estate Services has announced the recent completion of Sangamon Terrace Apartments, a new four-story building providing 24 units of affordable senior housing near 63rd and Halsted streets in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood.

Sangamon Terrace marks a significant investment in new senior housing construction for the neighborhood and is the nation’s last new-construction housing mixed-finance HUD 202 project.

Located at 6145 S. Sangamon Terrace, the $8.8 million Sangamon Terrace development received $4.3 million through the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Section 202 program, which was created in 1959 to finance the development and preservation of supportive housing for low-income seniors.

Although Section 202 still provides rental assistance to residents of existing communities, funding for new construction has not been available since 2012.

The Sangamon Terrace project team included Chicago-based firms Harley Ellis Devereaux as project architect, The Richman Group Affordable Housing Corp. as tax credit syndicator, Citi Community Capital as construction lender and Joseph J. Duffy Co. as general contractor.
