"Service to our community is a core value at Exelon - and that goes beyond delivering the power that supports our economy and drives our everyday life," said Exelon President and CEO Chris Crane. "We are committed to working with Mayor Emanuel and the Chicago Park District on developments like these at Addams Park that establish safe spaces in the community."The park is expected to serve an estimated 7,500 new residents moving into the adjacent 120-acre mixed-income Roosevelt Square development. Recent investments at Roosevelt Square include the development of a new library branch expected to open in winter 2018. The joint effort with Chicago Public Library and Chicago Housing Authority will include both a library and mixed-income housing with a total of 40 to 50 units. Park investments are a key component in Building on Burnham, the Mayor's comprehensive plan to invest in the Lakefront, the Chicago River, natural areas and recreational opportunities in neighborhoods across the city. This plan follows the Mayor's successful expansion of Chicago's park system in his first mayoral term, which has already added 750 acres of new parkland, 327 new playgrounds and more than $800 million in capital investment from neighborhoods and private sources.
