Located within the Albany Park community, the Lawrence/Pulaski TIF district is characterized by a mix of commercial, residential, institutional and industrial uses and vacant land. The purpose of the 106-acre TIF is to make the area more appealing for private business investment by improving its character, parking availability, traffic flow and mix of stores. Specific priorities include exterior and interior renovations to existing structures, the development of new commercial projects on underutilized and vacant land, infrastructure enhancements that improve streetscapes, and mixed-income housing as part of new mixed-use projects. Increment from the district is also targeted for job training and day care services that benefit area residents and workers.
