Affordable Housing

Alderman Moore is committed to preserving and creating affordable housing in Rogers Park. In the last two years alone, he has worked to create 119 new units and preserve 56 units of affordable housing.

In September 2018, Moore convinced the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) to purchase Levy House at 1221 W. Sherwin, thus preserving 56 units affordable senior housing so the senior citizens living there may remain in their homes.

In 2017, Moore helped a developer secure City of Chicago Low Income Housing Tax Credits to build 54 affordable housing units on top of 3,300 square feet of retail storefront space at Clark and Estes. Construction started in October 2018 with completion set for the end of 2019.

Also in 2017, based on community input, Moore approved a zoning change for a 30-unit accessible redevelopment that includes 3 units of accessible affordable housing. The proposal preserves the historic terra cotta façade of this Orange-rated building.

In 2016, he worked with the CHA and developer to create 65 CHA and 46 market rate units above a Target, all due to open in 2019 on Sheridan just north of Devon.
