Goose Island, North Branch slated to see biggest property tax hikes

Other neighborhoods to get the hit include parts of Streeterville and River North and East Village
  • North Branch expected to see a more than 48 percent increase in property tax
  • Development is booming along Halsted between Division and North Avenues
  • Since the Cabrini Green towers were torn down and the Whole Foods opened, the neighborhood has transformed

When the Chicago property tax was made official, the lines were blurry as to who would be most impacted. The Cook County Assessor has made it very clear that the area surrounding Halsted and Division will get hit the hardest, which is hardly surprising.
