WIN: Landmarks Commission Announces 2019 Adopt-a-Landmark Fund Grantees
“Four Neighborhood Landmarks Awarded Preliminary Grants from Citywide Adopt-a-Landmark Fund
A Chinatown community center and three historic neighborhood churches will be awarded grants from the Citywide Adopt-a-Landmark Fund, the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) announced on November 7, 2019. Grantees include On Leong Merchants Association, Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral and Rectory, Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church, and Beverly Unitarian Church.
“Each of these buildings have played a historic role in the development of their respective neighborhoods, and their thoughtful rehabilitation will ensure they remain community anchors for future generations,” said DPD Commissioner Maurice L. Cox, a member of the Commission on Chicago Landmarks.
“The Adopt-a-Landmark Fund receives 10 percent of the money paid by downtown developers through the Neighborhood Opportunity Bonus system. Previous projects approved for Adopt-a-Landmark grants include the Uptown Theatre, the First Church of Deliverance in Grand Boulevard, and an artist loft development in Pullman.”
