47th/King TIF

Designation: 2002    Expiration: 2026

The 47th/King TIF district was created to promote owner-occupied residential development on non-arterial streets and mixed-use development on the district's main thoroughfares, especially 39th, 41st and 51st streets. In helping to recapture the Grand Boulevard community's storied past as a center of African-American culture, the TIF is also intended to leverage private investment in a proposed "Blues District" along a portion of 47th Street. An abundance of vacant lots in the area offer numerous opportunities for site assembly assistance through the TIF. In addition to new construction, the 570-acre district is also intended to support the rehabilitation of existing structures and an expansion of public open space in the area.
