The Taylor Street Apartments and Roosevelt Branch Library, at 1342 W Taylor Street, is a public-private partnership among the Chicago Housing Authority (which owns the site), the Chicago Public Library, and Related Midwest, which is developing the site. The new library will replace the branch on Taylor Street that has been in a small, leased space for many years. There will be 73 mixed-income apartments. 

Related Midwest, SOM, and NIA Architects won a ULI Chicago Vision Award for this project, on July 10, 2019.
