The Chicago Housing Authority has unveiled its plans for redeveloping the Lathrop Homes public housing complex.

They call for keeping some of the original buildings, but the interiors would be redone. New buildings and retail space would be added.

The Lathrop Homes are located on the North Side at the border of Roscoe Village and Bucktown.

Some are concerned that plans to create market rate housing would force out lower income residents.
