  • After seeing a woman severely beating their Thresholds caseworker bloody having a quick lunch in the Target one afternoon I realized I never wanted to step foot in that nuthouse ever again. Always the same neighborhood psychos out front, one of them even killed a guy last summer in the bus shelter. Over socks. If I really need Target goods, I leave Wilson Yard alone.

  • Looks like Brian was here and gone quickly while I attended to real life. Thank you miss.

Rahm will probably use TIFs on the Old Main Post Office and Rezko Village

In the last few months, the mayor's signed on to a plan to give about $16 million in TIF money to the developer who's building 630 units of upscale housing at Montrose and Clarendon—a block or two from the lake.

So let's take it from the top with Rezko Village—that's what I'm calling the 62-acre swath of undeveloped land just southwest of Roosevelt and Clark.

    Rahm will probably use TIFs on the Old Main Post Office and Rezko Village
    click to enlarge Lee Hogan/Sun-Times Media With the steady upswing in the real estate market-and downtown properties fetching record sales prices-Mayor Emanuel's getting ready for one of his favorite activities: giving your tax dollars to developers. The money comes from-what else?-the tax increment financing program. That well never seems to run dry.
    http://www.chicagoreader.com

  • so what? The Rezko Village has zero infrastructure, the city needs to invest into that land to make it a successful project. No water lines, no sewer, no transportation.
    The TIF money used on that project will provide the city with an amazing ROI based on new property taxes.

Uptown Losing Its Diversity As Minorities Leave In Droves, Data Shows

She lived at the Norman Hotel at 1325 W. Wilson Ave., an SRO with a variety of short- and long-term tenants. In 2012, that community scattered when Cedar Street bought the property and co-founder Jay Michaels told tenants they had about six months to find new housing, she said.
