Mayor cuts ribbon on Hyde Park's Harper Court redevelopment

November 8, 2013 (CHICAGO)

Mayor Emanuel joined other elected officials and community members Friday morning to officially cut the ribbon on the new Harper Court.

That project brings several new amenities to the main commercial district of Hyde Park, including a new hotel, stores and restaurants.

There is also space dedicated for outdoor festivals, farmer's markets and other community events.

Mayor Emanuel estimates the project will bring nearly 300 permanent jobs to the area.
