There has been a significant amount of research which points to Chicago Avenue as a future center of commercial development in the Austin neighborhood.

Soul City Corridor

The Soul City Corridor (Austin to Cicero) in the Austin Neighborhood, focuses on:

  • Guiding development of underutilized land

  • Development which promotes Black Culture, Arts, and Entertainment

  • Economic Development and Job creation

  • Development which serves the neighborhood.

“Chicago Avenue is one of Austin’s primary thoroughfares that can once again become a main shopping district in our community and a draw for residents and visitors. Streetscape enhancements and other public and private investments can develop a vibrant, sustainable and safe business corridor.” - Austin Forward Together
