Martin Farrell House is a 59-unit elevator midrise built in 1990 for elderly and disabled residents in East Woodlawn.

This acquisition by POAH in Chicago follows more than ten years of work creating a new, vibrant, healthy and attractive mixed-use/mixed-income community in the Woodlawn community, just south of the University of Chicago.

The building’s amenities include laundry facilities, a computer lab, a community room with a pool table and piano, and on-site maintenance and management. Residents also have access to off-street parking. Farrell House is located within walking distance of beautiful Jackson Park, located along Lake Michigan. Residents can walk to CTA bus stops and the Metra Electric commuter rail line.

As with all POAH units in Woodlawn, the residents of Farrell House can access resources and services at the Woodlawn Resource Center.
