This chapter shifts to the empirical focus of the book on three new mixed-income developments. We describe each of the neighborhood and development site contexts, exploring the demographic shifts, institutional landscape, public housing decline, and revitalization trends that preceded the public housing transformation in each area, as well as the dynamics of planning and contestation that shaped the development process in each. We provide detailed descriptions of the three sites in which our study of mixed-income development took place: Oakwood Shores (replacing the Madden-Wells public housing development), Park Boulevard (replacing Stateway Gardens) and Westhaven Park (replacing Henry Horner Homes). We then review key elements of the design and pre-development phase of the mixed-income sites and describe the emerging populations across the sites as they have been built out.

Keywords:   mixed-income sites, neighborhood context, planning design, pre-development, emerging population, Oakwood Shores, Park Boulevard, Westhaven Park
