Bill Struever, another well-known developer, received TIF funds and historic federal and state tax credits to make the many projects like American Can Company, Belvedere Square, Clipper Mill and Tide Point come to fruition. He had the vision and the many talented people he hired under Struever Brothers, Eccles and Rouse figure out through complicated financing how to get these projects done. They transformed neighborhoods which, in turn, made homes more valuable, retail services viable, schools better (because people actually started volunteering at the local schools so their kids could have a good school) and people actually wanted to move back into the city. These projects are what make a difference in people being able to casually walk their own streets without fearing they are going to get mugged. Commercial property owners dump a lot of money into security to create — more jobs!
