​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Related Midwest has partnered with the Chicago Housing Authority and other Chicago-area developers to lead a multi-year, multi-phase revitalization of the historic Julia C. Lathrop Homes development on Chicago’s Northwest side. Situated between the Bucktown and Roscoe Village neighborhoods, Lathrop Homes is a 32-acre site bordered by the Chicago River, Diversey Parkway, and Clybourn and Damen streets. The redeveloped Lathrop Homes will be a mixed-income, mixed-use community that will include public, affordable and market-rate housing along with significant green and open space.

The goal of the Lathrop Homes redevelopment team is to produce a model urban mixed-use community offering housing that is affordable to families across a broad income spectrum. The development team's intention is to create a diverse, connected neighborhood with schools, parks, community space and retail. Lathrop Community Partners (LCP), which was named master developer for the project by the Chicago Housing Authority and the Lathrop Homes Working Group, includes three industry-leading Chicago-based developers: Related Midwest; Heartland Housing, Inc.; and Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation.

Lathrop Homes is currently comprised of classic red-brick row houses with duplex units and three-story walk-up buildings. The final master plan is expected to preserve many of the existing buildings while enhancing the green space in the community. Other proposed elements of the final master plan include a new retail “main street,” an enhanced version of the development’s original “Great Lawn,” as well as a new riverfront park.​
