Mundelein - Downtown Redevelopment
Mundelein - Downtown Redevelopment. As special counsel, represent the Village of Mundelein in its downtown redevelopment efforts, including the creation of tax increment finance districts encompassing over 100 acres. This work included advising the village in the “de-TIF” and “re-TIF” of a portion of that area, to “re-start the clock” on the TIF’s statutory time period, helping the village recover time lost to the Great Recession. The work has also included planned unit development ordinances, redevelopment agreements, and re-zoning ordinances for notable projects, including the Cardinal Square multi-family project allowing up to 12 buildings, 541 condominiums/apartments, and 41 townhomes, in buildings up to 7 stories in height.
