Frank O. Lowden Homes


Built in 1953, Lowden Homes was named after Frank O. Lowden, an illustrious political figure who was an Illinois governor, a U.S. congressman and eventual presidential candidate. Today, this 127-unit south side development features energy-efficient gas hot water heaters, insulated exterior doors and attics and temperature sensors. The CHA has also installed combined smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, hazardous leak detectors and controller boards in each unit to increase the security and energy efficiency of families living in Lowden Homes.
