While reconstituting a street network as a physical framework for a mixed-income neighborhood on the site of a deteriorated public housing, Oakwood Shores also carefully revives Chicago housing traditions such as the six-flat, shown here.
Chicago, IL, USA
This project redevelops land owned by the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) to replace troubled public housing buildings with a new mixed-income community. The site design reestablishes the street grid and alley system to restore the neighborhood back to its traditional character offering pedestrian-oriented streets. Parking is generally located at the rear of buildings, screened by structures and obscured from view.

Clearly defined public and private spaces offer room for activity while reinforcing a sense of ownership and responsibility in taking care of the neighborhood. Two existing parks are now connected by Langley Boulevard when completed, drawing them into the neighborhood.

For the corridor with Boston's worst access to transit service and most underused commuter rail line, the plan calls for an enhanced rail service with new stations that will allow for higher-density affordable housing, better access to jobs, and for a greenway linking parks and recreational destinations.
BOston, MA
A collaborative planning team formed by four community development corporations created a vision for new, urban villages on vacant, underutilized and brownfield sites along Boston’s most underused commuter rail line -- a 10-mile transportation corridor stretching from downtown to the suburbs. The neighborhoods affected by the plan have some of the city’s highest poverty levels, the greatest dependence on public transportation, and the worst access to transit service. The plan calls for an enhanced rail line with new stations that will allow for higher-density affordable housing, better access to jobs, and for a greenway linking parks and recreational destinations.
