The Kreisman Initiative for Housing Law and Policy invites students to tour the Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) developments in the West Woodlawn neighborhood. Grove Parc Plaza was a 504-unit Section 8 housing redevelopment project located on a 12-acre site centered at 61st and Cottage Grove, four blocks southwest of the Law School. POAH has replaced Grove Parc Plaza with new housing on South Cottage Grove Avenue (The Jackson, The Grant, The Burnham and Trianon Lofts) and in the surrounding neighborhood.
Following the tour, the group will meet at the Town Hall Room of the Woodlawn Resource Center (6144 S. Cottage Grove Avenue). We will have lunch and a panel discussing the intersection of the Grove Parc Plaza redevelopment with larger community revitalization initiatives, including The University of Chicago’s development plans.
Lunch will be provided.

The Effects of the 1930s HOLC "Redlining" Maps: A Conversation with Daniel Hartley of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago2/28
In the wake of the Great Depression, the Federal government created new institutions, including the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation (HOLC), to stabilize housing markets. As part of that effort, the HOLC created residential security maps for over 200 cities to grade the riskiness of lending to neighborhoods. Hartley and his co-authors trace the effects of these maps over the course of the 20th and into the early 21st century, focusing on the difference in outcomes (segregation, home ownership, house values, and credit scores) between residents living on a lower-graded side versus a higher-graded side of an HOLC boundary.
Panelist: Daniel Hartley, Chicago Federal Reserve
