Construction Begins on Dorchester Artist Housing Collaborative

Construction has finally begun on Dorchester Artist Housing Collaborative! Dorchester Artist Housing Collaborative is the redevelopment of the former CHA Dante Harper housing project into 32 mixed-income rental units centered around an arts and culture center. Landon Bone Baker Architects is working with Brinshore Development, Rebuild Foundation, and Theaster Gates, founder of Rebuild Foundation, to transform these unused buildings into thriving hubs of cultural activity within Chicago’s Grand Crossing neighborhood. The residential space will include a mix of artist housing, market rate units, and affordable housing units with arts and cultural programming for residents of the Collaborative and the neighborhood.

Interior demolition work is now complete and extensive tuckpointing/masonry repair is underway. Thank you to Rebuild Foundation for posting the full set of photos!
