Ravenswood TIF

Designation: 2005    Terminated: 2018

Located in portions of the Lake View, North Center, Uptown and Lincoln Square communities, the Ravenswood Corridor TIF is characterized by older industrial properties along Chicago & Northwestern Railroad tracks and institutional and commercial structures on the site of the former Ravenswood Hospital. The 78-acre area is intended to retain existing companies and attract new high-tech and light industrial employers. Funds are targeted to assist rehabilitation projects and new development projects, also public works upgrades, infrastructure investments, and environmental remediation projects where necessary. Funds are also allocated to support the redevelopment of the hospital campus to meet mixed-density, mixed-income housing needs while continuing to provide employment opportunities within the district.
