Uptown apartment project awarded major union grant


THE WEDGE — The City Walk Apartments slated for construction at 1312 W. Lake St. recently netted a $15.7 million contribution from the AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust (HIT). 

The $20 million project is expected to generate 100 union construction jobs. 

The HIT’s national Construction Jobs Initiative has the goal to create 15,000 union jobs over a three-year period, in an attempt to put members back to work following the recession.
