    I’ve always wondered why so many public/affordable/low-income housing projects get slapped with names that memorializing some social/political figure that in turns makes the property scream “public/low-income housing!” It’s almost cliche.

    Look at Chicago…Robert Taylor Homes, Ida B. Wells Homes, Altgeld Gardens/Phillip Murray Homes, Cabrini–Green Homes, Clarence Darrow Homes, etc.

    It may seem trivial but these things matter when it comes to the image of public/low-income housing, and contributes to continued stigmatization of their creation.

    Hi Jeramey Jannene,

    When could you re visit the old German Church that is at
    the old Pabst Brewery? They must be close to completing
    it by now! You know the new Micro Brewery.

    @Thomas – I’ll stop by for Friday Photos sometime soon. They just received approval for a small sign to be attached to the building.

    I was last there (coverage wise) in October.
