LITTLE VILLAGE — After recently introducing a proposal for a new affordable housing development in Pilsen, the Resurrection Project will soon pitch plans for another affordable housing building in neighboring Little Village.

The Pilsen-based nonprofit aims to bring 60 affordable apartments to 2714 W. 21st St. near the California Pink Line station. The group will introduce their plan for the site at a community meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday night at Hammond Elementary School, 2819 W. 21st Place, according to Ald. George Cardenas’ 12th Ward office.

Under plans, the Resurrection Project would turn an existing building into an affordable housing development that could include 15 one-bedroom, 30 two-bedroom and 15 three-bedroom apartments, according to documents posted by Cardenas’ 12th Ward Facebook page.
