 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.
