The two apartment towers that anchor the new Lincoln Common development in Lincoln Park opened to residents in Spring 2019. The Apartments at Lincoln Common fill the pair of 20-story towers with 538 apartments, featuring studio, one-bed, two-bed, and three-bedroom units.
The sprawling complex is built on the grounds of the former Children’s Memorial Hospital, which was demolished after the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago was constructed in Streeterville. Children’s patients were moved there in the spring of 2012.
This phase of The Lincoln Common could have been called Noahville, because everything about this project came in pairs:
There are the two towers.
The two towers were erected by two tower cranes.
There are two developers: Hines and McCaffery Interests.
There are two design architects: Antunovich Associates and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
Alas, there only needed to be one general contractor in charge of putting it all together; W.E. O’Neil filled those duties.
Included in the photo gallery below are a couple more pieces of the Lincoln Common puzzle:
- A five-story boutique office building at 2350 N Lincoln.
- A row of single-story retail spaces from 2316-2348 N Lincoln
- The renovated “power station” buildings at 2355 N Lincoln
- A new Chase Bank in the recreated building at 2377 N Lincoln
Updates to come: The Orchard, a seven-story condominium building currently under construction, and Belmont Village Senior Living, a completed seven-story residential facility at 700 West Fullerton.
Congratulations to all involved in the ongoing establishment of a great new neighborhood on Chicago’s north side.
