Altenheim Line Framework Plan
The project explores the possibility of a “rails and trails” greenway along the current CSX Altenheim railroad corridor through the North Lawndale community area. This greenway would be built as a community amenity as an elevated Rail & Trail. However, the proposed greenway also runs through an industrial and residential area with large amounts of vacant and underutilized property. The Framework Plan is intended to guide industrial & commercial development, and a residential housing strategy, to bring new vibrancy and stability to the neighborhood and avoid the displacement pressure that has occured around previous amenities like the 606.
