Uptown, six miles north of the Loop, has a long history as an entertainment district, a way station for newcomers to the city, and a neighborhood that embraces an extraordinary range of people who represent nearly every social, economic and political strata. It's a melting pot.
And the center of that pot is Broadway and Wilson, where LISC, with pre-development loans and tax credits, had a hand in the development of Wilson Yard, a real estate project that includes a Target, a grocery, and affordable rental apartments.
