Encourage, incentivize and consolidate commercial development along Springwood Avenue

Springwood Ave was once the commercial and cultural heart of the West Side. Today, very few businesses are operational on the corridor. Consolidating new commercial development on key blocks will help recreate the bustling business district and bring much-needed retail amenities to the neighborhood.

The Springwood Center, opened in 2012, was the first new construction on the avenue in years
