CHICAGO (AP) _ The Chicago Housing Authority and low-income residents at Cabrini-Green have agreed to a federal lawsuit settlement that will mean hundreds of public housing units will be built.

The agreement was filed last week and would settle a 2013 lawsuit that the Cabrini-Green Local Advisory Council filed against the CHA. The Chicago Tribune reports the settlement lets the CHA continue with mixed-income housing plans on the city’s North Side but also guarantees the agency will increase options for low-income residents.

The CHA has renovated about 150 Cabrini-Green rowhouses for public housing. Under the agreement the CHA must set aside another 176 rowhouse units for public housing and create 1,800 low-income area units.

The last remaining high-rise apartments were torn down at the site in 2011. A judge is to review the settlement Thursday.
