Partnership with POAH

In partnership with the Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH), the South Suburban Senior Housing and South Chicago Salud Center & Senior Housing buildings in Chicago and the suburb of Harvey will act as the anchor tenants for the project. These properties were acquired by POAH in 2019, and have preserved over 221 affordable apartments for low-income seniors.

“Trajectory worked with our family farm to bring a solar project that brings us strong cash rents and a long-term solar asset for the community.  The Trajectory team worked with state and local authorities and managed the entire process successfully from beginning to end. We could not be more pleased.
