After spending over 10 years unoccupied, a large space on the 5th floor has been renovated and leased to the Stone Soup Cooperative. The renovation, which took two months, has rehabbed the area into the most sustainably ‘green’ space in the building.The result is a low-impact, energy efficient, sustainably designed living space for the community of over 15 people.
ICA closed out the program events for the year on December 3rd with a Hub event & a Chicago Sustainability Leaders Network (CSLN) gathering. The Hub event drew in an inter-generational group, including CSLN members, students from two high schools, and AmeriCorps Public Allies whose service work involves sustainability with youth. The aim of Hub days are to promote the ICA GreenRise as a community space to gather and learn skills that support personal sustainability.
