The Avalon Regal Theater is developing a multi-phase investment in the historic South Shore and Avalon Park neighborhoods of Chicago’s South Side. The project will be developed around the juncture of 79th Street, Stony Island Avenue, South Chicago Avenue, and the Chicago Skyway- incorporating the Avalon Regal Theater District as the cornerstone of a larger Arts & Innovation Corridor.
The development phases include the re-opening of the Avalon Regal Theater as the epicenter for Black entertainment in America and the repurposing of neighborhood structures as support spaces for media and technology.
The project will revitalize the neighborhood through small business and workforce development. It will also strengthen existing cultural organizations through capacity-building programs in partnership with the community.
