An Iconic retail destination

Portage Park has been named one of Chicago’s Best Neighborhoods and Six Corners sits at the epicenter of that economic growth. With nearly 50 new businesses since 2013, our commercial district is attracting business owners from the city over with large and small redevelopment opportunity, TIF funding, $150,000 build out grants for small businesses, a $20 million streetscape improvement and sidewalk beautification project as well as an area maintenance program for businesses.

SSA 28-2014

SSA 28-2014 aims to promote the development, redevelopment, operation, and promotion of the Six Corners Shopping District for the economic benefit of all businesses and property owners within the SSA in alignment with the Six Corners Master Plan.
