The historic Howard Theater was built in 1918 and has a rich history as being a destination for movies and live productions. The building has been repurposed into affordable housing units with elements of the original theater being included in the redevelopment such as the facade and outer lobby. The Howard Theater is now comprised of 40 income-restricted rental units atop 7 vibrant commercial spaces occupied by well-known businesses like Sol Cafe, Howard Brewing, Factory Theater, Cally’s Curls and P & J Footwear.
Howard Street, located on the border of Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood and suburban Evanston, is alive with an engaging personality represented by its vital diversity, welcoming nature, and entrepreneurial spirit.Current AvailabilityTake a Tour
