  • The Polk Bros. Foundation Affordable Rental Housing Preservation Award

Heartland Housing’s Hollywood House Apartments serves the needs of senior citizens in Chicago’s Edgewater community by offering independent and assisted living. Holabird & Root provided architectural, engineering, and interior design services for the modernization of the 198-unit, 134,000-s.f. building. The new design for the residential units included kitchen and bathroom upgrades, new flooring, lighting, painting, and window treatments. The existing corridors on the residential floors, first-floor lobby and community spaces, and the outdoor patio space were modernized, as well as the top-floor laundry room, solarium, and roof deck. The building meets HUD requirements for handicap-accessible housing by renovating 20% of the existing units for the physically and hearing impaired.
