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 one, two, and three 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.
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.
