Bronzeville Worst Case Scenario

Worst Case Scenario

The Bronzeville Neighborhood once had more than 30,000 residents. The recent foreclosure crisis brought attention to the neighborhood because of its high number of vacant houses. This project by Jake Haggmark and Jon Grubb discovered the declining population started decades before the foreclosure crisis. The declining population resulted in many empty vacant lots. This study speculates on how implementing a community land trust could utilize the space for residents interests.
