It opened on July 1, 1934,[4] and quickly gained international recognition for using moats and ditches instead of cages to separate animals from visitors and from other animals.

Lane Tech College Prep

Stadium and Locker Room Renovation

“During the spring 2007 season, the Chicago city building inspectors declared the stadium at Lane Tech College Prep unsafe and condemned the eastern half of the field. Since the stadium was built on top of a covered over landfill, there is still great concern on capacity levels. However we were able to renovate around this issue and continue renovation in and around the field. Lane Stadium reopened with a new turf field, IHSA regulation track, and new locker rooms.”

Dr. King Legacy Apartments

45 Unit Remodel

“This spring, for the first time in more than 40 years, people will be living at the same North Lawndale address as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his family did in 1966, when he came here to dramatize the desperate state of housing in Chicago’s minority neighborhoods.

The three-flat at 1550 South Hamlin Avenue was damaged during the riots that followed King’s assassination (on April 4, 1968) and eventually demolished. The site has been a vacant lot ever since. On Sunday, April 3rd, Lawndale Christian Development Corp. will celebrate completion of the Dr. King Legacy Apartments on that historic site. “We have finally accomplished his purpose in coming to Chicago,” says Kim Jackson, the organization’s executive director. “Dr. King came to Lawndale to ensure that families had quality housing that was affordable. I think he would be pleased to see what we’ve done here.””
