What began as the site for a new Saint Anthony Hospital to replace its 121-year old facility and continue providing services and employment to the west and southwest sides of Chicago, evolved to a vision for greater access to the other areas of critical need for healthy communities, including education, safe housing and jobs.
Located at West 31st Street and South Kedzie Avenue, the 30-acre mixed-use campus will deliver a combination of health and wellness services, early childhood development and continuing education, affordable housing, recreation and retail.
Focal Point will serve an area of over 440,000 people living in diverse and unique neighborhoods on Chicago’s west and southwest sides, including Little Village, North Lawndale, Austin, Brighton Park, New City, East and West Garfield Park, Archer Heights, Gage Park and McKinley Park.
Developed and managed by Chicago Southwest Development Corporation, the campus will be a first-of-its-kind, financially sustainable national model, with rental income generated from campus tenants ensuring a continuous flow of funds redistributed into campus and surrounding community non-profit programs and services.
