Welcome to the 53rd St. blog

During the last two years, the University has embarked on a project to help revitalize 53rd St. The 53rd St. TIF district provides a wonderful opportunity to update the “Heart of Hyde Park” by making it a vibrant, mixed-use main street which serves both Hyde Park and surrounding neighborhoods. The redevelopment process can be complex and will take time, but this blog has been designed as a resource for community members who want to keep themselves informed about the latest progress as well as stay engaged with the 53rd St development process.
