Archer Courts Townhomes
Chicago, Illinois 60616, United States
Archer Courts Townhomes occupies the vacant land to the west of the original CHA project– Archer Courts. The design connects the original buildings with the new development through the use of continuing walkways, landscaping themes, and similar building systems.
Archer Courts Townhomes are 43, three-story townhouses, each with its own garage and roof deck. In order to maintain affordability, a pre-engineered, load-bearing, precast-concrete panel system was utilized. Shop-fabricated steel window bays, aluminum windows, pre-engineered wood trusses, and precast concrete stairs, with the precast wall panels, comprise a “kit of parts” which increased construction speed, thus keeping the project affordable by decreasing labor time.
Archer Courts Phase II is part of the City of Chicago’s Homestart program and provides a mix of market-rate and below market-rate home ownership opportunities along with CHA rental units.
