79th/Southwest Highway TIF

Designation: 2001    Expiration: 2025

The 79th Street/Southwest Highway TIF was created to help replace underutilized commercial structures along Western Avenue, 79th Street, Southwest Highway, and Kedzie Avenue with mixed-income residential projects that serve the area's housing needs. In adjusting land uses to contemporary needs, the district is intended to reinforce various commercial nodes to create a cohesive retail community that serves adjacent neighborhoods. Specific priorities include land assembly and site preparation projects that are conducive to modern development, particularly for senior housing projects. Additionally, the TIF promotes select rehabilitation projects where appropriate.
