Skender Completes POAH Project in Woodlawn

Serving as base building and interior construction manager, Skender recently completed Woodlawn Station, a transit-oriented affordable housing development in the South Side neighborhood of Woodlawn. The firm completed the project, just under the CTA’s Cottage Grove Green Line terminus, on behalf of Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH).

POAH says its investments and partnerships are having a dramatic impact on Woodlawn, in terms of population and job growth, and declines in crime and vacant properties. The nationwide nonprofit now has five such projects along Cottage Grove Avenue.

Woodlawn Station features a main building with 55 units, and two additional nearby buildings containing 12 and three units respectively. Occupancy has begun in the 55-unit building, while the other two buildings will be completed at the end of this month.
