Chicago's Woodlawn community celebrates the opening of 350 new apartments.

Thursday was the ribbon cutting for The Grant at Woodland Park at 61st and Cottage Grove.

These new mixed-income apartments were made possible in part by a $30.5 million federal grant.

Woodlawn Park was one of eight redevelopment projects across the nation to receive the grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
