Former Hegewisch trailer park in foreclosure

Harbour Point Estates, Chicago IL

Reading about a sleek Airstream trailer set me to wondering about the status of Harbour Point Estates, a large trailer park in Hegewisch that was slated to be redeveloped with 960 single-family homes.

The most recent news I’d seen on the project was this June 2008 Crain’s article reporting the Chicago Community Development Commission’s approval of a $26.5 million TIF subsidy for the project.

Various searches on the would-be developer, Harbor 4000 East LLC, turned up lis pendens notices on the property and two foreclosure filings on January 31st of this year. The cases are pending.

Harbour Point estates once housed nearly 3,000 families.
