Homewood trustees to consider incentives to enable Burlington location on Halsted Street

Homewood trustees will consider an incentive package at their regular meeting Tuesday that would enable Burlington to develop a department store at 17825 Halsted Street, formerly occupied by Office Max.

The property is not in a tax increment finance district (TIF), so the village would offer a combination of sales tax sharing and Cook County Class 8 property tax reductions to help make the project viable.

The property is owned by DIKA Homewood LLC.

The deal would provide Class 8 property tax reductions for three other properties also owned by DIKA Homewood in the same retail center, including 17715 Halsted . . .
