The grand opening was held Friday on the latest phase of a development that's bringing jobs and mixed income housing to the South Side.

Oakwood Shores is located in the 3700-block of South Cottage Grove. It will offer mixed income housing for 48 families.

It also includes a medical center operated by Mercy Hospital.

The site used to be home to the Ida B. Wells, Madden Park and Clarence Darrow public housing developments.
