Legends South, formerly Robert Taylor Homes, is a neighborhood located in the Grand Boulevard Community Area on the South side of Chicago, Illinois.

The neighborhood was previously named after the Chicago housing development, Robert Taylor Homes, that once took up most of the area. The buildings were overrun with crime and fell into disrepair. They were demolished in 2007. The area is now being redeveloped as Legends South with a mixed-income community in low-rise buildings as part of a federal block grant received for the purpose from the HOPE VI federal program.[1]
