Comments on: A high-rise at Lathrop Homes? http://www.newstips.org/2013/08/a-high-rise-at-lathrop-homes/ Chicago Community Stories Thu, 03 Apr 2014 01:18:42 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.4.12 By: Vernadine K http://www.newstips.org/2013/08/a-high-rise-at-lathrop-homes/comment-page-1/#comment-16704 Tue, 28 Jan 2014 21:07:59 +0000 http://www.newstips.org/?p=7597#comment-16704 I agree with Rachel, Lathrop is known for its low rise apartments and units. Why start all over with the high rise such as Robert Taylor’s and Cabrini Green. The Lathrop had a low crime rate due to a small density and everybody knew everybody. The community also had the Boys and Girls Club, the Church of Good News, And Mary Crane. Piling each other on top again, is not the answer. This is not the answer!

Re: density, it’d also be interesting to look into the size of proposed units at Lathrop (or Roosevelt Square), as research per Professor Brad Hunt (Roosevelt U., see: “Blueprint for Disaster”) suggests the success of Lathrop historically had to do with relatively low youth-density (youths/adult) as compared to the higher-rise projects (all with an abundance of large units) such as Robert Taylor, etc.
