Mt Pisgah Apartments - Evanston, IL
Project Status Update
April 10, 2023 – the Evanston City Council voted to approve zoning for this project. Construction will start next fall.
Mt Pisgah Ministry and HODC propose to transform the 1800 block of Church Street by constructing two new buildings that will activate and revitalize the area. The project will create neighborhood retail space, affordable rental units, and a new church at 1805-1815 Church Street.
Mt Pisgah and HODC will partner on all aspects of the development as one overall project but each building will be owned and financed separately. Mt Pisgah will contribute the land it currently owns and will include the City-owned land once it is given ownership by the City.
Workforce Housing for Families
HODC will develop a mixed-use retail and residential building with street level shops and apartments above. There will be approximately 2,250 square feet of leasable commercial space that will service the community.
The building will include energy efficient measures to obtain National Green Building Standards certification and Energy Star rating. Rents will be affordable to households earning less than 60% of area median income. Evanston residents will be given preference as possible. HODC will own and manage the apartments upon completion.
The church will be a three-story building located at the corner of Church and Darrow. It will include a 200 person worship space, meeting rooms, offices and fellowship space. Mt Pisgah will use the space as its primary worship center and will hold weekly gatherings and annual conferences.
