Parkway Gardens Preservation

Location:
6356-6556 S Martin Luther King Dr, Chicago, IL

Project Description:
Parkway Gardens Associates contracted with Nia Architects, to prepare a comprehensive report necessary for the renovation and upgrade for an 8 acres site complex containing 35 buildings and 694 units of affordable housing in Chicago. Parkway Gardens Apartments was constructed in early 1950s as a multi-family middle income housing complex. There were two different building types with the complex. Eleven 8-story mid-rise buildings and 24 three-story walk-ups with a two-story management and leasing office. The client was interested in creating a permanent solution to constant problem of flooding within the complex. Nia and its consultants conducted extensive site investigation and prepared reports and formulated repair recommendation to the Owner for corrective action plan. From the approved scope outlined in the report, we were hired to design solution for the remediation and renovation of the complex. We prepared schematic design, design development, construction documents and bidding documents for the Owner. Subsequent to receipt of bids, the Ownership decided to sell the complex. The process of selling such a huge complex took approximately nine months, at the heart of recession, and eventually a new Owner emerged.
