Lincoln Centre Update
As was reported previously, the proposed redevelopment of Lincoln Centre, located at 2518-2552 N. Lincoln Avenue, proceeded to final review by City of Chicago departments.
On July 16th, 2015 the development proposal received unanimous approval by the Chicago Plan Commission, and on July 22, 2015, also received unanimous approval by the City Council Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards.
Several public meetings, most recently on May 26th. and an extensive community process led to a significant redesign of the proposal and additional community benefits.
In particular, new parking has been created for local businesses along Lincoln Ave. Plus, residents of the new development will not be eligible for residential permit parking or guest passes, preserving street parking for current residents. A summary of additional concessions and modifications is here.
The developer has also agreed to a significant community agreement to govern construction. You can see the community agreement, as well as the approved planned development statements on my website.
The redevelopment will proceed to full City Council review on July 29, 2015. I want to again thank all residents who participated in this rigorous community review process.
