Landlord Pays $16 Million to Families of Three Women Deceased from Heat Exposure

A Chicago landlord who refused to turn off the furnace in a building where three women died of heat exposure in 2021 is paying $16 million to the late tenants’ families in a settlement.

 Landlord Gateway Apartments and property manager Hispanic Housing Development Corp. agreed to settle a lawsuit from the families of Gwendolyn Osborne, Janice Reed and Delores McNeely after they were found dead of heat exposure inside their apartments at the James Sneider senior apartments at 7450 North Rogers Avenue in Rogers Park in May 2021, Block Club Chicago reported. 

Officials found that residents had complained about the rising temperatures in their units, but the landlord declined to turn the heat off.
