Master Plan 

Morgan Park Commons is a 12 acre mixed-use development on Chicago’s Far South Side. The northwest corner of 115th and Halsted streets sits at the intersection of West Pullman, East Morgan Park and West Roseland. This prime real estate has been vacant for more than a decade since Jewel moved four blocks south and the Halsted Mall was torn down.

When complete, Morgan Park Commons will include over 360 acres of affordable housing, 10,000 SF of retail/commercial space, a community center, and a public park space. The development is bordered on the west side by the historic regional bike trail, Major Taylor Trail, and has relationships with surrounding commercial businesses on Halsted. Additionally, there will be transit connectivity to downtown via a new bus rapid transit station, that will be built in the community center. Finally, the brand and identity of the development is grounded in featuring artists from the Southside of Chicago by including them in the interior and exterior of the design, and ensuring that community members are represented.
