Construction will soon begin on a much-needed affordable housing complex for veterans in Chicago Heights.
The project, which will be built on the former site of St. James Hospital in Chicago Heights, has received approval of federal tax credits, reports WBBM.
The approval clears the way for construction on an 82-unit affordable housing complex for veterans at 1423 Chicago Rd.
The complex will have the retail space on the ground floor. Construction is expected to begin as early as the start of next year and could be completed by 2022.
