The Resurrection Project Unveils Casa Morelos

Published: June 22, 2009
On Wednesday, June 24th, 2009 at 3:30pm, The Resurrection Project, in partnership with its financing partners Bank of America, the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA), the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO), and the City of Chicago Department of Community Development, celebrated the completion of Casa Morelos—the newest affordable rental building and the first State of Illinois Low-Income Housing Tax Credit project in the community of Pilsen—with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the site located directly north of the Alivio Medical Center in Pilsen.
The economic climate and depressed housing markets have increased the communities’ need for affordable housing, especially for renters. Casa Morelos will provide 45 units of high-quality housing at affordable rates to Chicagoland families at a prime location easily accessible to health care, transportation, local schools and parks, and the Pilsen Industrial Corridor.
The Resurrection Project showcased the new building, which includes 45 one, two, and three bedroom apartments and features several green building technologies including a green rooftop system reducing energy consumption and water entering the storm sewers. Casa Morelos is located at 2015 S. Morgan in the Pilsen community.
