Jefferson/Roosevelt TIF

Designation: 2000    Expiration: 2024


Located on the Near West Side, the 147-acre Jefferson/Roosevelt TIF district contains a mix of commercial, industrial, institutional, and vacant properties, along with railroad right-of-ways and utility uses. The TIF is designed to accommodate an increased demand for retail uses in the area resulting from nearby population growth, and to accommodate the rehabilitation and expansion needs of existing industrial and commercial firms. Priorities include the enhancement of Roosevelt Road as a major retail corridor, new east-west access routes over the Chicago River and I-90/94, the rehabilitation or replacement of select properties for viable light industrial and commercial uses, and the creation of mixed-income housing opportunities in new mixed-use projects. Additional priorities include traffic flow improvements, the creation of new off-street parking facilities, and pedestrian-friendly streetscape upgrades that create a cohesive identity and improve access with adjacent neighborhoods.
