ChicagoTalks has an article on the continuing court fight over Wilson Yard and how our taxes, when converted to TIF funds, are being spent. An excerpt:
The original redevelopment plan included mixed-income housing, a movie theater, and retailers Target and Aldi’s.
Eight years after the original plans, Aldi’s was built but not in the original location in Wilson Yard, there are no plans for a movie theater, mixed-income housing is being replaced with low-income housing, and Target has not yet committed to build in the complex.
Representatives for Target declined to comment.
