Bronzeville TIF

Designation: 1998    Expiration: 2034*

Encompassing portions of the Douglas and Grand Boulevard communities, the Bronzeville TIF district was designated to revitalize an area that once served as the social, cultural and economic center of Chicago's African-American community. The 491-acre district provides resources that support the rehabilitation of existing structures and incentives for new construction on vacant and underutilized land. Priorities include historic preservation, business expansion, and cultural projects that promote the area's attractiveness as a place to live and do business. Goals also include an increase of rental and owner-occupied residential structures and initiatives that establish links to Chicago tourism and convention industries.
