Potential TOD in Chicago

Growing Chicago

New website, calculator tout benefits of building near transit

As living near transit becomes increasingly popular, a new report and online calculator from the Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC) and Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP) offers recommendations and support for the City of Chicago to expand zoning and target financial incentives to attract more residential and commercial development near transit in neighborhoods across the city.

The “Grow Chicago” website also provides a first-of-its-kind calculator, developed by MPC, that allows people to input the location, type and size of a specific development proposal, and calculate the benefits to the local community in terms of additional annual local retail sales, tax revenues, nearby jobs, residents, annual transit rides and affordable housing units.

View the report’s complete findings and recommendations and try out the calculator today!
