Chippewa Park: Construction in 2017?

Discuss construction activity, major renovations, office projects, streetscape improvements, etc. in South City -- defined by the area south of Interstate 44/55.
Anybody know anything about this?

I hope to hell this doesn't involve razing the building(s) to which the sign is attached.
Rehab of 16 buildings -Scatterd Sites around the area of Chippewa and side streets - Most or all vacant into apartments - Using low income and historic tax credits

couple of buildings on Chippewa east of Nebraska, then on the side streets north and south of Chippewa. Couple of them are nice storefronts -
Has work on this started?
^No. They're hoping to close on construction financing by the end of the year. LIHTC pricing took a nosedive after Trump won and they had to figure out how to fill a big unexpected gap. Phase II is likely dead because of the shenanigans at the State with future LIHTC awards, but Phase I should still happen.
^ Thanks. Too bad it wasn't better news.
Looks like Phase One is about to start...

Chippewa Park rehab of 16 historic south city buildings moves forward ... e-latest-1

hopefully phase 2 will be able to be worked out for this great project.
This is what urban revitalization looks like.
Excited for this -- Chippewa is such a huge, awesome commercial corridor with so much potential. This is a small step, but hopefully it gains some momentum for that stretch east of Grand.

Yes! Now if we could just get about 5 more projects of this size going simultaneously in the Southeast part of South City.
