Revitalizing Roseland

Connectivity

Utilization of the Redline extension as a means to reach greater Chicago

Roseland has struggled in recent years with violent crime, poor health outcomes, an absence of economic success, and a lack of connectivity to greater Chicago. However, greater than the current issues for this community are opportunities for revitalization, revolving around the development of a multi-modal transit and healthcare hub. The major focuses for this project center around connectivity and health. Connectivity via the expansion of the Redline to reach greater Chicago, connectivity through reorganization of multi-modal transit, and connectivity through economic and educational opportunity. Health comes through the development of a new hospital campus, with the promotion of green space, and by providing opportunities and services that have the potential to promote positive health outcomes. Health and connectivity were then used as a catalyst to address crime, education, youth, senior living, opportunity, and affordable housing.

Established in 1849, Roseland became a prosperous community largely dependent on industry, peaking in growth during the middle of the twentieth century. Over time, however, the closing of major businesses left the community unemployed and impoverished. Today Roseland is a working class neighborhood largely dependent on jobs in the education, healthcare, and

transportation sectors of the economy. That said, 14% of the people within Roseland must rely on the governments unemployment program due to the lack of opportunity within the area. This, in addition to the large numbers of violence and drug crimes plaguing the community bring unsafe living conditions for all the residents within. The need for connectivity and improved

health outcomes is clear. Roseland on average has a higher percentage of poor health outcomes than the greater cook county and the United States. Unsafe streets lead many adults to live inactive lives causing obesity to rise in the area while the life expectancy declines

It became the people’s primary healthcare facility in which they were able to get necessary wellness checkups, vaccines, and dental clinic. Unfortunately the hospital had to close its doors due to a lack of funding, leaving many people with an inability to receive healthcare, further decreasing the

That said, an important driver in considering the best way to revitalize Roseland was an analysis of underutilized spaces within the community. A number of empty lots Healthcare

At the scale of the immediate site, activating spaces throughout the complex made the journey fluid. Clinical functions were maintained north of 111th Street, while acute care functions are positioned to the south. This, in addition to the market, flexible dining, retail and daycare at the community hub allows people to move freely to clinics while getting necessary shopping done while they wait for clinic appointments or the train. The green space has been designed to give the people of Roseland spaces where they can go to gather as a community, shop in the plaza, live active lifestyles, reflect, and even garden to provide for their families while giving patients green views for healing. That said, the green spaces related to the complex are to the west while green spaces giving back to the community are towards the east.

On an closer level, the medical district takes on a more pedestrian friendly atmosphere allowing the residents to roam freely without feeling under stimulated or unsafe. That said, the main axis, 111th Street has been redesigned to allow for a central pedestrian island while secondary axis’s at 110th Place and 112 Place become well-lit pedestrian only paths. Vertical North - South roadways become more vehicular oriented with greenery providing a safe barrier for walkers.

Mapping how people walk across the site became a way to identify key elements within the masterplan. These include the development of 111th Street as a main axis for future growth, with the new multi-modal hub anchoring one end and future business and educational opportunities at the other. These opportunities include necessary job training through pop-up colleges and vocational schooling in order to give the people of Roseland an opportunity. That said, residential, commercial, and community functions are integrated throughout the medical district, relying on infill rather than mass redevelopment as a means to preserve the fabric of the neighborhood. Green space is also incorporated throughout the masterplan to give the community much needed parks and gathering spaces

That said, The 2nd floor mimics that of the 1st floor with the addition of inpatient units. These inpatient units become monumental on the 3rd level. There is a generous amount of green space between the inpatient units to give everyone natural light, views, and outdoor space to rejuvenate. On a closer level, each of the inpatient units on the 3rd floor mimic Enlarged Plan D. Patient rooms are placed towards the perimeter with large windows facing the rooftop gardens while bringing in natural light to promote healing. Staff dictation zones are pocketed into the rooms off the hallway while the majority of staff related functions are centrally placed to maintain efficiency. Collaboration is a key element of this inpatient unit, where large workspaces are provided.

Moving closer into the tectonics of the building, several strategies have been incorporated to break up the large facade to respect the existing neighborhood and give a humanistic feel to anyone moving about the building. That said, circulation has been incorporated as a glowing beacon of light for the community during the night as such, it has began to look . The horizontal circulation connecting the two ends of the facility on the western facade has become a feature that mimics that mimics the bridge connecting the bus island and transit hub.

Roseland is made of people like Grandma Joan, Cameron, Helen, and Chris and Carter. People who are in need of community gathering spaces, a market for fresh food, gardens for active living, walkable streets for safety, and educational opportunities for employment.
