Lawson House

In December 2014 Holsten Human Capital Development (HHCD) and its partner, Holsten Real Estate Development Corporation, purchased the Lawson House, located at 30 West Chicago Avenue, from the YMCA.

The YMCA established the building in 1931 with a donation from Victor Lawson, publisher of the Chicago Daily News. It was originally run as a full-service hotel, but shifted to temporary housing after WWII and gradually began to serve as affordable housing for extremely low-income or formerly homeless men and women. Today it is the largest single-room occupancy (SRO) supportive housing facility in the Midwest.

HHCD now administers supportive housing services funded through HUD and other programs through the Lawson Life Development Center. HHCD and Holsten Real Estate have agreed to maintain the building as affordable housing. A comprehensive rehabilitation of the entire building is planned for 2018, which will convert the residential units to self-contained studio apartments, adding kitchens and bathrooms to each unit.
