|Designation: 1988 Expiration: 2012
The Howard/Paulina TIF district is intended to coordinate the comprehensive mixed-use redevelopment of a once-vibrant commercial area around Howard, Paulina and Clark streets. At the time of its designation, the district was characterized by a mixture of commercial, retail, industrial and residential land uses that suffered from deferred maintenance and high vacancy rates. The 32-acre district is designed to foster the creation of a new retail complex, related commercial improvements, and the rehabilitation and construction of mixed-income housing for residents of the Rogers Park community. Additional goals include assistance for street and public right-of-way enhancements, soil improvements where necessary, job training and improvements to the CTA's Howard Street transit station.
