After decades of disinvestment, could historic preservation be used as a tool to help rebuild vibrancy in the Roseland neighborhood? Find out at this roundtable discussion, co-convened with OHC 2020 community partner Preservation Chicago.
In its prime, South Michigan Avenue in Roseland was a well-regarded shopping district that supported the Roseland and Pullman communities and drew in visitors from other areas of the South Side. Once referred to by residents as “The Avenue,” Roseland’s Michigan Avenue Commercial District is now on the “Chicago 7 Most Endangered” list, compiled annually by Preservation Chicago. In addition, Roseland is included in the City of Chicago’s INVEST South/West initiative.
