Rosenwalk

Dedicated

Alderman Dowell Celebrates

Historic Grand Opening of the

Rosenwald Courts Apartments.

Fulfilling a promise she made when

first elected, Alderman Pat Dowell

hosted the historic grand opening of

the new Rosenwald Courts Apartments

located on 47th Street between

Michigan Ave. and Wabash

Ave. Vacant since 2000, the Rosenwald

was home to such African-

American luminaries as the poet

Gwendolyn Brooks, boxer Joe Lewis,

music producer Quincy Jones and

singer Nat "King" Cole.

The building was originally developed

in 1929 by Julius Rosenwald,

President of Sears Roebuck & Company,

as housing for African-

American residents during the time

of strict segregation. The renovated

Rosenwald Courts Apartments now

boasts 239 updated one- and twobedroom

units for seniors and families.

Additionally, the building contains

thousands of square feet of retail

space on the first floor, with prospective

tenants including: Sip and

Savor, Illinois Service Federal Bank,

Michelle's Old Fashioned Ice Cream

and a small grocery store.

Thank you to everyone who made

this wonderful project possible.

Thank you to Mayor Rahm Emanuel

and the entire team at the Department

of Planning and Development

for their hard work, Eugene Jones

CEO of the CHA, David Roos and

Jim Bergman - the developers of this

great building - and their development

teams at Iceberg Development,

Evercore Cos, RCAP LP, the Lightengale

Group and Roos Enterprises

Inc., community activist Bobbie

Johnson and the countless others

who made this dream a reality.
