I shot this aerial photo yesterday from the 3600 block of South Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
The “towers in the park” are three groups of apartment buildings (none are public housing).
From north (background) to south (foreground):
- Prairie Shores (5 identical buildings that are very hard to see)
- Lake Meadows (4 identical buildings behind the associated one-story shopping center plus multiple buildings to the east, closer to the lakefront)
- T.K. Lawless Gardens (3 identical buildings, that appear the tallest because they’re the closest, 746 units, and 54 townhouses not seen)
John Warren Moutoussamy (an architecture graduate of Illinois Institute of Technology who studied under Ludwig Mies van der Rohe) designed Lawless Gardens, according to this IIT Magazine article.
