North Branch (North) TIF

Designation: 1997    Expiration: 2021

The 160-acre North Branch (North) TIF is characterized by active industrial facilities, vacant and underutilized industrial properties, commercial and retail sites, and an increasing amount of residential structures. Located with the Logan Square and Lincoln Park communities, the TIF was created to reinforce employment opportunities in the North Branch Industrial Corridor by supporting new industrial projects and by assisting efforts that redevelop existing buildings for new industrial purposes. It is designed to help eliminate unnecessary streets, alleys and railroad right-of-ways and to protect existing industrial land by creating buffers and transitional areas near residential neighbors. Job-generating projects are targeted for underutilized locations near the intersections of Damen and Clybourn avenues, Damen and Fullerton Avenue, along the west bank of the Chicago River, as well as other locations.
