This planned development is a major
commitment to the Hyde Park neighborhood."

Hyde Park is well known as a progressive neighborhood, and the economic growth within this community has been more substantial than most areas in the City of Chicago.  The Vue53 proposal brings a spot light to additional growth via:
  • Construction jobs
  • Market-rate and affordable rental housing
  • Conveniently located retail options
  • Proximity to public transit
  • Increased contributions for TIF district
  • Private investment without tax dollars or subsidies

To get the latest news on the Vue53 development, join the 53rd TIF Advisory Council Meeting on Tuesday, May 7th, 7pm at Kenwood Academy in the Little Theatre. The Planning and Development Subcommittee will discuss the plan for the Vue53 Development.
