An aerial progress report on the CHA’s Plan for Transformation

Crain’s Chicago Business has a report on the impact of the market downturn on the redevelopment of Chicago Housing Authority projects pursuant to what Crain’s refers to as its “so-called Plan for Transformation.” The Crain’s headline tells the story: “Real estate collapse cripples CHA plan to mix homeowners, renters.”

Crain’s snarky reference notwithstanding, CHA high-rise projects have been vastly transformed – what else would you call total demolition of buildings and displacement of thousands of people?

Our visual progress report on the CHA’s efforts includes aerial shots of the former sites of Cabrini-Green, above, and Rockwell Gardens and Stateway Gardens, respectively, below.

You can see more aerial views of Chicago from our recent helicopter tour in YoChicago’s album at Flickr.
