Occupied buildings on site

A look at some of the different building types in Bronzeville that can be found in the vicinity of the disused Kenwood embankment. Vacant buildings in following post. Site visit cut short by torrential rain.

A greystone with turret adjoining the Zion Grove Baptist Church.

Former industrial building now used by a self-storage business. This type of reuse by storage businesses appears to be quite common - I might do a separate a post at some point.

Wendell Phillips High School with vacant plots in the foreground.

An old two-flat, most likely combined into one house now.

A more modern house type towards the west end of the embankment. Sculpture garden in foreground.
