About Miriam Apartments

  • Property Type: Supportive
  • Units: 66

Located in a historic district of Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, The Miriam Apartments were originally built in 1925 as a home for senior citizens. The four-story brick building was acquired by Mercy Housing in 1991 and transformed into an affordable housing complex for women who were otherwise unable to afford a home, making it the first development of its kind in Illinois. The first floor of the building offers a large community kitchen, recreation room, resident lounge, bike storage, and laundry facilities. The building was named for Sister Miriam Friday and her lifetime of work with Uptown’s poor and homeless.
