Kinzie Industrial Corridor TIF

Designation: 1998    Expiration: 2021


Spanning portions of the Humboldt Park, West Town, East Garfield Park and Near West Side communities, the Kinzie Industrial Corridor TIF district is intended to enhance the corridor as a modern industrial and distribution center that serves the long-term needs of existing companies and attracts additional industrial employers. Priorities for the 1,094-acre area include the provision of economic incentives that stimulate private investment throughout the district, especially within the Fulton and Randolph street market areas, and the reorganization of land uses along the TIF's western edge to provide improved separation between residential and industrial uses. Funds are targeted for site assembly efforts, rehabilitation projects, public works improvements, environmental clean-up where necessary, and improvements that facilitate vehicular access. Other priorities include job training and readiness programs for nearby residents.
