Southwestern Medical TIF District

The Link on Maple Ave-5219 Maple Ave (OED-Patskin)

The mission of the Southwestern Medical District TIF District is to provide a source of funding for public infrastructure improvements anticipated to enhance the real estate market for this area and provide a model for redeveloping a former industrial and warehouse district to take full advantage of the DART light rail system, promote transit-oriented development, especially in areas that are major employment centers like the Medical District, and to implement appropriate urban design standards. The boundary of the district was expanded in 2020 to create the Medical Campus Sub-district and increase the City’s tax base by supporting private redevelopment of currently tax-exempt property located south of Harry Hines Boulevard.
