Three years afterwards approval of a arguable Arlington Heights tax accession costs district, a cardinal of redevelopment projects accept been proposed or will be underway anon in the area, admiral said.
Among the affairs for the adjacency encompassing the Hickory-Kensington TIF commune east of downtown: a 79-unit accommodation building, as abounding as 19 new single-family homes and a new day-care centermost for up to 150 children.
The 35-acre commune is arctic of Northwest Highway and belted by Dryden Place, Miner Street and Belmont Avenue. It’s abreast Mariano’s and added newer retail, although the breadth is apparent primarily by older, automated barrio and abandoned land.
The apple lath accustomed the TIF commune in July 2014 to activation redevelopment, admitting action from some business owners who feared they would be affected to move.
The TIF froze acreage taxes at a assertive level, redirecting revenues into a appropriate armamentarium controlled by the apple for bread-and-butter development purposes. While no funds from the TIF accept been accustomed to clandestine developers, apple admiral say they are currently discussing what accessible improvements could be funded.
A planning certificate accustomed by the apple lath in 2013 calls for “a vibrant, mixed-use adjacency which complements the city area, accouterment new accommodation and bartering opportunities in a walkable, pedestrian-friendly environment.”

Called Hickory Apartments, it would accept a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units and 4,000 aboveboard anxiety of bartering amplitude on the aboriginal floor, according to affairs by Neri Architects.
Another 28,000 aboveboard anxiety of acreage would abide abandoned to the arctic — and may be purchased by the apple — for approaching development, admiral say. Campbell Street would be continued amid the accommodation architecture and abandoned land.
The angle afresh went to the village’s blueprint and subdivision lath but is still in its infancy, according to Charles Witherington-Perkins, the village’s administrator of planning and association development.
Just to the arctic is Heller Barge Co., a abiding Arlington Heights business whose owners against the TIF and don’t appetite to move. The barge backyard is blockage put for now, as it afresh got new advance on a railroad activation band that connects to the property.
“There’s currently no affairs to redevelop their property,” Witherington-Perkins said. “It would alone be redeveloped with their absorption and cooperation.”
Nearby, added distinct ancestors homes could be complete in the Arlington Market subdivision at Dryden Place and Wing Street. Some 30 homes are already standing, and there is developer absorption to body as abounding as 19 added on bank-owned acreage abaft them, Witherington-Perkins said.
And now that a architecture admittance has been activated for, architecture could activate anon on the 15,000-square-foot Kensington School day affliction on the northwest bend of Dryden and Kensington. Affairs were accustomed by the lath aftermost September.
