Cores for the dual 20-story tower at The Lincoln Common are starting to rise from the deep excavations along Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park. W.E. O’Neil has a pair of tower cranes working on-site, so we’re going to assume there’s a little friendly competition going on over there over which tower grows faster.
We’ve pointed this out before: The Power Of Two is hard at work at The Lincoln Common.
- There are 2 developers: Hines, and McCaffery Interests
- There are 2 design firms: Antunovich Associates, and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill
- There are 2 initials in general contractor W.E. O’Neil’s name
- There are two 20-story towers, each containing 269 units
- There are two tower cranes (this is the most improtant pair, of course)
There were a couple newsworthy events at other phases of The Lincoln Common last week. First, a tower crane permit was issued for Belmont Village at 700 West Fullerton. Later in the week, a full permit was issued for the 6-story office building at 2350 North Lincoln, directly across the street from the dual towers. W. E. O’Neil is the CG on those two projects as well.
