  • STAY INFORMED about the progress of the federal review of the Project.
  • PARTICIPATE in the review.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has ordered a do-over historic review of the Pullman Artspace Lofts.

HUD determined that the IL SHPO [State Historic Preservation Officer] has not conducted its Section 106 reviews in accordance with federal statute, and as such are invalid”—this according to a letter to the Illinois Housing Development Authority dated September 27, 2017, from Andrew Michaelson, Director of Property Management for Artspace Projects, Inc. Artspace is the lead developer behind the Pullman Artspace Lofts.

In other words, HUD has required an entirely new review because the 2016 review was improperly conducted.

This federal review--required by the 1966 National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA)--is commonly known as a "Section 106 review."

This Section 106 review will identify, assess, and resolve potential "adverse effects" the  proposed Pullman Artspace Lofts may cause to the integrity of the Pullman National Historic Landmark District through consultation with federal, state, and local agencies, as well as, with other "consulting parties" and the public.

We invite members of the community and the public to learn more about this important review and encourage you to take part in it.
