Workforce housing has been identified as the number one challenge for economic development in Cook County. The EDA has conducted a number of studies to determine the highest and best use of our resources to address this need. See the reports here:
Working in partnership with One Roof Community Housing, the EDA has developed ten new owner-occupied homes and Grand Marais and 16 new rental apartments in Lutsen. Planning is ongoing for more potential units.
The EDA is partnering with Building Blocks LLC to add housing units at Village North in Grand Marais. We are eager to hear from other developers about proposed housing projects, particularly those targeted for workforce.
For more information about workforce housing, please contact the EDA office.
