Legends South is more than just another residential development. It is one of the largest revitalization efforts ever undertaken in the City of Chicago. This extraordinary development traverses the very heart of Bronzeville. Bookended by two world-famous universities the renowned Mies van der Rohe designed campus of IIT to the north and the leafy enclave of The University of Chicago to the south todays Bronzeville is a neighborhood on the move.A stroll up the median of Martin Luther King Drive today offers formal landscaping, colorful artist-designed benches, decorative bronze plaques plotting the path of Bronzevilles own Walk of Fame, and views of refurbished 19th century homes. At the corner of 47th Street, the community has reclaimed the pulsating street life depicted in the canvases of another Bronzeville son, artist Archibald Motley, when the retail street scape was known as The Stroll.The ballrooms may be gone, but exciting development is now occurring, including the 40,000 square foot Harold Washington Cultural Center, which hosts national acts and speakers. Bronzeville now includes a multitude of local attractions, from art exhibitions on the local gallery scene to local restaurants and cafes featuring live jazz and spoken word performances. Legends South, the communitys largest and most impressive residential development, has made a dramatic impact on this historic community.
