Canopy is one of six teams to compete for the North Lawndale INVEST South/West development

Canopy is one of six finalists to compete for the North Lawndale INVEST South/West development. Partnering with The Michaels Organization and New Covenant CDC, the Canopy team has envisioned Pivot, a five-story mixed-use community hub where Lawndale residents can connect with neighborhood institutions, cultural organizations and each other. Pivot includes 54 units of affordable and market-rate apartments, a neighborhood business incubator with a community room, a marketplace with small-scale spaces for local businesses, a coworking space and additional restaurant and retail space. The estimated total project cost is $27.5 million.

The Chicago Department for Planning and Development (DPD) is pursuing a project at 3400-18 W. Ogden Avenue in North Lawndale that will be catalytic to future development of the corridor by breathing life into a block previously occupied by a parking lot and vacant land. It offers the chance to bring tangible benefits to North Lawndale in the form of affordable housing to prevent displacement, commercial space to foster local business growth and retail amenities, and public spaces to give North Lawndale residents a reason to frequent Ogden Avenue. Additionally, it provides the community an opportunity to shape its own future by participating in the development and evaluation process and creating wealth building opportunities for small business owners, developers and contractors in North Lawndale.
