If you are a fan Lil Durk And the late King Vaughn, you have probably heard them rap music about growing up in Chicago’s Parkway Gardens, also known as “O-Block.” Known as one of the largest and most well-known residential complexes in Chicago, O Block houses some of the greats we know today. In addition to Von and Durk, former first lady Michelle Obama has also lived in the O. according to news reports from Chicago Sun-TimesThe complex is currently for sale and is looking for a new owner. Today, Durk surprised fans by responding to a tweet from the Kollege Kidd blog, announcing that he was hoping to become the new owner.
Kollege Kidd tweeted, “Parkway Gardens in Chicago aka O Block Listed For Sale.” Your turn replied, “I’ll buy it, it doesn’t matter how much.” O Block is a mega property that can make a difference in a low-income neighborhood with the right owner. The neighborhood is also known as gun violence and gangs, and with your role as a potential owner, it can make a positive impact in the area.
Currently, O Block has 694 apartments spread over nearly thirty buildings. Not only that, but the 13-acre complex extends from 63 (always Von Street) to 65th Street, which is located between Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Calumet Street.
Affordable housing consultants do not have a listed asking price, nor is there any information yet whether Durk has contacted them to make the purchase. We love to see rappers repurchase their group!
