Community Presentation:  

601 W. Diversey

Dear Neighbor,


Join me on Tuesday, December 16th at a public presentation for the proposed redevelopment of 601 W. Diversey Parkway, currently the "Inn at Lincoln Park." Per my direction, the developer will present their plans and answer any questions you may have regarding this proposal. 


The applicant has proposed demolishing the current 5-story hotel structure and replacing it with a new, 8-story hotel containing 147 keys, 55 parking stalls and ground floor retail. The current structure contains a zoning designation of B1-2, and the applicant is seeking a modification of the underlying zoning to a B1-5 designation. 


The current proposal is a significant reduction from a prior Planned Development approved in 2004 that permitted a 15-story hotel and residential structure on this site.


Please note, no approvals or final plans have been granted for this project. This meeting is being held as part of an open and transparent approval process. Click here for more information.
