Bridgeport Village: TND in Chicago

Recommended Posts

Checkout the development overview: Bridgeport Village

It is a development (at build-out) of approx. 350 single-family homes in the Chicago neighborhood of Bridgeport. This location is about 4 miles southwest of the Loop and is built on old industrial land adjacent to Bubbly Creek (a tributary of the South Branch of the Chicago River).

It is one of the best examples of TND that I have seen. It is built right into the existing street grid of the neighborhood and has alleys with actually functional rear yards. unlike many TNDs with attached garages off alleys that completely kill the rear yards.

My understanding is that the houes are selling easily and going for over $600,000 for even the smallest units.

Not bad; well integrated, adjacent to already urban development, on a former brownfield. What kind of transit hook up does it have?

There is the Ashland stop of the Orange Line EL Stop about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile away to the north.

Any commercial development?

No, this is simply a single-family detached house development. There is sufficient existing commercial in the surrounding neighborhoods.
