Dear neighbors,

Please consider joining on Tuesday, September 29th for a public meeting to present a modified proposal for 601 W. Diversey Parkway, currently The Inn at Lincoln Park. At this meeting, hosted by the Park West Community Association and my office,   representatives of the LVM Corporation will present revised plans and answer questions regarding this proposal.
As a result of community feedback from previous meetings and presentations, the revised proposal calls for the replacement of the current, dilapidated structure with a new, 9-story hotel containing ground level retail, 143 hotel keys and 75 parking stalls.  The modifications incorporate an additional 23 parking stalls from the initial proposal; an updated traffic management plan for Lehmann Court; a revised loading zone mechanism to the rear of the structure; an updated building fa├žade and a redesigned retail base. 

The current proposal remains a significantly downsized development from a prior planned development approved in 2004 that allowed for a 16-story structure with a Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 7.0 and a height of 152'. 

Please note, no approvals 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.
