Two 20-Story Twin Towers On The Way To Lincoln Park

This past Wednesday and Thursday were good days for Hines, McCaffery Interests, the government of Abu Dhabi, and anyone else counting on the redevelopment of the old Children’s Memorial Hospital property in Lincoln Park into a new mixed-use micro-neighborhood called The Lincoln Common.  That’s because the City of Chicago issued construction permits for the two biggest components of the enormous project.

The first nod came on Wednesday for the $19 million tower at 2345 North Lincoln Avenue:

NEW CONSTRUCTION. FOUNDATION AND SUPERSTRUCTURE ONLY . 20 STORY MIXED USE BUILDING.  269 DWELLING UNITS.  ZERO PARKING SPACES.

And then a day later, the $14 million 2335 North Lincoln Avenue saw some love:

NEW CONSTRUCTION. FOUNDATION AND SUPERSTRUCTURE ONLY 20 STORY MIXED USE BUILDING.  269 DWELLING UNITS. ZERO PARKING SPACES.

The two flanking towers are the lynchpins of the complex, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Antunovich Associates.
