Wentworth Gardens

3770 S Wentworth Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60609

Commissioned in 1945, Wentworth Gardens was the last project built to house war-industry workers during the Second World War. Designed by Loebl & Schlossman, construction of this four-square-block development required the demolition of 20 structures, including the baseball park where the White Sox played until 1910. Today, the Sox are a neighbor of the completely rehabbed Wentworth Gardens, which is just a few blocks away from U.S. Cellular Field. Updates include new kitchens, bathrooms and landscaping improvements.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
