dc.description.abstract <p>As landscape architecture students, we have conducted research on the Lakeside Development plot of land on the South Side of Chicago and created our own designs intended to create a captivating space on a 500-acre undeveloped site on Lake Michigan. This site, a former steel mill, is now classified as a brownfield. The history of this land created design restrictions dealing with soil quality, plant growth, and structural stability. Our research about the history of the site, current conditions, demographics, and infrastructure lead us to design strategies for neighborhood revitalization and brownfield reconstruction. Our findings and design specifications are expressed through detailed renderings and illustrative drawings. The main goal of our research is a comparative analysis of the McCaffrey Interests existing design strategy with our research-based design. Our designs will improve the ecological conditions, provide blue and green infrastructural elements, connect the nearby communities, and provide a nature infused connection to Lake Michigan.</p>
