On Thursday, Rahm Emmanuel declared “the beginning of a new chapter in the history of Lincoln Park” at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Lincoln Common development on the former site of Children’s Memorial Hospital.
Lincoln Common will create two luxury apartment buildings on the triangular lot formerly occupied by Children’s Memorial at 2300 N. Lincoln Ave. It will have 540 units as well as 60 low-rise condominiums, 160,000 square feet of retail space and an acre of open space available to the public, not just residents.
The project is slated for completion in late 2019. More at DNAinfo.
