Edith Spurlock Sampson Residences

Chicago, IL

Located in the heart of Chicago’s vibrant Lincoln Park neighborhood, the age-restricted Edith Spurlock Sampson Residences includes 394 studio and one-bedroom homes.

In 2016, the Chicago Housing Authority embarked upon a development analysis to identify solutions for enhancing the existing 60s-era residences while promoting market rate development on the site’s vacant and underutilized parcels.

RATIO and PIRHL were unanimously selected by the CHA to develop and execute a new vision for the site, leveraging their extensive experience in the design and development of socially supportive and mixed-income housing programs. This new vision will provide crucial quality-of-life amenities and community space for both residents and the larger Lincoln Park community, from open and accessible greenspace to a new Community Center promoting social interaction among senior residents.

Developing a comprehensive vision for the site will involve the extensive engagement and participation of all community stakeholders, from residents and CHA officials to the greater Chicago community.
