Strategic Overview

Based on careful, study, capital improvements will be channeled into four sectors. These are the Central Campus and South Campus sectors, where the University now has the strongest presence and greatest physical resources; the North Campus, where limited development is envisioned; and West Campus, a Tax Increment Financing district, or TIF.


North Campus

North Campus is the University Land north of West Loyola Avenue. The east boundry is Lake Michigan and the western boundry is North Sheridan Road.

Depending upon funding and approvals, it would be desirable to construct a pedestrian/bike path along the shoreline east of Santa Clara Hall to provide access from Central Campus to Hartigan Park and Beach


West Campus / TIF

These parcils lie to the west of the CTA right-of-way, along North Broadway Avenue and North Sheridan Road, and will continue to be studied for a variety of tax-yielding community improvement projects. Housing and parking along with new and enhansed university-owned retail space will be developed.


South Campus

The area is a mix of private and University land uses, bounded by West Sheridan Road to the north. North Broadway Avenue to the west, and North Sheridan Road to the east. The block east of North Sheridan, where the Sullivan building and the Yellow House are located, is also part of the South Campus.


The University expects to continue to use its existing properties for student housign and related activities, adding additional structures when there is opportunity to do so. New University development is anticipated to be compararible with the current community context (a densely built, urban neighborhood). New architecture will establish and reinforce the University's presence and character in the area. Look up urban in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...
