Meaning “Beautiful Puerto Rico,” our 47-unit Borinquen Bella development boasts two of Chicago’s most iconic murals of Puerto Rican Heritage. Borinquen Bella features 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom units throughout scattered sites in West Town. LUCHA owned these properties for more than a decade after closing on the renovation plans in 2010 and completing the renovation in 2013.
Borinquen Bella consists of the rehabilitation of 4 solid, 80+ year-old buildings for families at 50% of AMI. The buildings are located within a four-square-block area. The $10.2 million development has assured the presence of low-income families in a stable, ethnically, and economically diverse neighborhood that has experienced significant reinvestment over the last two decades.
