CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD INITIATIVE

The Chicago Neighborhood Initiative

Chicago is a mosaic of 77 recognized neighborhoods, each creating a distinct community. Commercial corridors running through and often connecting these neighborhoods are the city’s lifeblood, supporting businesses that range from corporate offices to cafes.

The C.A.R. Economic Development team concentrates on storefront vacancies and their impact on neighborhood vitality. Over the past year we’ve canvassed commercial corridors city-wide and uncovered reasons for underutilized commercial space.

Following are snapshots of 26 neighborhood commercial corridors we’ve canvassed to date, intended for your use with investors, home buyers and other clients. Expect more reports ahead.
