Greater West Town Training Partnership is a community-business partnership devoted to expanding employment opportunities to disadvantaged community residents, while simultaneously addressing the workforce development needs of Chicago area manufacturers and distributors.
RX Made worked with the Andersonville Development Corporation (ADC) to design and build a #People Spot parklet for the 5600 block of North Clark Street. Also a HUGE thanks to Chicago Department of Transportation, Latent Design, our awesome team of design interns from the Art Institute of Illinois in Chicago and Sustainability Programs Coordinator, Brian Bonanno from the ADC.
Come on down, check in out, and stay for a parking spot party! More parklets, more green space, more pedestrian activity, more fun!
When our donations team isn’t helping out our friends at Kitchen Crashers, they’re traveling around town picking up building materials from our wonderful community of donors. Got something you want to donate or starting to work on a remodel and thinking about salvaging what’s there for someone else to reuse? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us more!
