CHICAGO - The Chicago City Council has approved a proposal to redevelop a former elementary school into apartments.
This is part of a nearly $27 million project in Englewood called "The Regenerator."
Developers say the goal is to breathe new life into the Racine Avenue corridor.
In addition to affordable housing, the redevelopment will include a community center and health clinic.
Woods Elementary was closed by Chicago Public Schools in 2013.
