This mixed-use development will become the nation’s first education-based, organic garden & lifestyle center, combined with market-rate and affordable rental housing. We are collaborating with Evanston Gateway, LLC and LaManda Joy, founder of Peterson Garden Project and The Yarden, to transform a long underutilized brownfield site in Evanston, Illinois at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Howard Street. The prominent site and the new development will become a new gateway to Evanston, and bring commerce, dwelling, and organic gardening together in one location.
