Shops & Lofts recognized at Chicago Neighborhood Development Awards

Skilken Development Co. and Troy Enterprises were recognized for The Shops & Lofts at 47, a testament to 10 years of never-give-up perseverance not only by the Ohio-based developers, but the city and the LISC-affiliated Quad Communities Development Corporation. A new Walmart and 96 stylish mixed-income apartments now quicken the pulse of Bronzeville’s still-beating commercial heart.  Read more about the event here.
