CHA Broke Promise to Rehab Cabrini Rowhouses, Lawsuit Alleges

CABRINI-GREEN — A community group of some of the last public housing tenants in the Cabrini-Green rowhouses has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Housing Authority, claiming the CHA reneged on a promise to keep hundreds of housing units.

The residents of those 440 rowhouse units, which are now fenced in and boarded up, agreed to temporary relocate in 2008 so that their homes could be fixed up, but construction never started.

Now, the Francis Cabrini Rowhouses are likely to be torn down and turned into mixed income housing, while those who had agreed to temporarily move away are left out to dry.
