Eastman/North Branch TIF

Designation: 1993    Terminated: 2012

The Eastman/North Branch TIF is located on Goose Island, a key industrial corridor that includes portions of the Near North Side and West Town communities. The 11-acre TIF was designated to promote the corridor's use by industrial companies, especially by financing improvements to streets, utilities and a seawall along the North Branch of the Chicago River. Additionally, funds from the TIF are targeted to provide development incentives, assist with land assembly efforts, undertake environmental remediation projects where necessary, and provide job training assistance.
