New Apartments Just Off Lincoln Park

A new residential building is coming to a prime lot just off Lincoln Park.  The City of Chicago has issued permits for construction of the new structure at 2050 North Clark Street.

RESIDENTIAL APARTMENTS NEW CONSTRUCTION- ONE (1) 5  STORY MULTI-FAMILY 32 DWELLING UNIT APARTMENT BUILDING WITH ELEVATORS. LANDSCAPE, DRIVEWAYS AND SITE IMPROVEMENTS AS IMMEDIATELY SURROUNDING BUILDING.

Sounds promising, for a building that’s just a half-block off of the north side’s playground.  Close enough to use the park daily, but sheltered from the winds of Lake Michigan by a much taller building on Lincoln Park West.

This is a fairly new plan for this location.  Back in 2007 there was another proposal for this address.  The Jesuits envisioned a smaller building — just three stores — that would serve as their offices, a chapel, and about a dozen guest quarters.  That, obviously, never got off the ground.  Then in 2015 the land was re-zoned from Institutional Planned Development 1093 to a simple B1-3 Neighborhood Shopping District.
