53rd Street TIF

Designation: 2001    Expiration: 2025

Encompassing similar portions of the Hyde Park and Kenwood communities, the 53rd Street TIF district was created to re-establish a cohesive and vibrant mixed-use district that provides a comprehensive range of goods and services to the surrounding residential community. It is also intended to accommodate new residential and institutional uses where appropriate. Other priorities include streetscaping and landscaping along 53rd Street and Lake Park Avenue, new off-street parking facilities, and projects that provide job training and day care for local businesses. The 84-acre district also supports the rehabilitation of existing structures and the expansion of public open space in the area.
