Construction will soon begin on our affordable ADU at 1930 Jackson Avenue! Please tune in on October 29th to hear Richard Koenig (Housing Opportunity Development Corporation), Robin Rue Simmons (Evanston 5th Ward Alderwoman), and Dick Co (EDC) share remarks about the kick-off for this project.
This 2-bedroom ADU will be rented at 60% of the Area Median Income or lower, providing a healthy, affordable home in the Evanston community. By utilizing EDC’s structural insulated panels (SIPs) to frame the home, the ADU will be a more energy-efficient building when compared to traditional houses.
This project became possible through Evanston City Council’s strong support to expand affordable housing options through changes to the City’s zoning code. This ADU will share the property with an existing 2-flat, which was not allowed in Evanston before January of 2020.
We hope to “see” you all on our live-stream to celebrate a new affordable home in our community!
