Harvest Commons | Landon Bone Baker Architects | Chicago, Illinois

This 89-unit supportive housing project is part of Mayor Emanuel's Neighborhoods Now initiative that brings coordinated development to seven areas around the city. Hidden in this gorgeous 1930 Art Deco facade are state-of-the-art features like a green roof and solar panels which were tucked away to preserve the architectural integrity of the structure. The urban farm onsite includes beekeeping facilities and a chicken coop, and the produce will be served as a planned ground floor cafe. A nutritionist and gardener are also on staff to help serve residents.
