Lathrop affordable residence helps organize family chess tournament in Chicago

On July 23rd, Related Midwest’s affordable residence Lathrop partnered with local nonprofits to organize Chi-Town Chess: The Englewood Open, a chess event that brought Chicago families together for a day of fun and competition. In the Lathrop Cooperative Woodshop, artists Erik L. Peterson and Vernon Herrion developed, designed and constructed ten hand-built chess tables and twenty stools, along with custom-made trophies for the tournament winners, made from reclaimed Lathrop lumber felled by the redevelopment.
