Chicago Housing Leaders tour Lathrop Homes
Susan King, FAIA and Alan Treuthart, AIA, of the Chicago office were presenters at the 8/6/2019 AIA Chicago tour: "Preservation and Revitalization at Historic Julia C. Lathrop Homes."

Julia C. Lathrop Homes was originally constructed in 1938 as a New Deal model for public housing. Today, Lathrop is undergoing a multi-phase transformation into a new mixed income residential and commercial community led by Related Midwest with HED acting at the architect of record.

The tour group visited Lathrop’s recently-rehabbed North Campus including the original Administration Building, updated apartment buildings and rowhouses, Prairie style landscape architect Jens Jensen’s Great Lawn, and the soon-to-be-activated riverfront.
