Located at the site of the former Children’s Memorial hospital, The Lincoln Common will provide 1.1 million sf of retail, office, and residential space in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood.

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Antunovich Associates collaborated on the project, which is designed as a new neighborhood center. The development includes 105,000 sf of retail space, two 20-story residential towers, an office building, and the adaptive reuse of a turn-of-the-century brick building that was original to the hospital campus. A 150-room senior living facility will also be include in the final design.

The two 20-story towers will comprise 540 apartments and 60 condominiums. A central plaza, landscaped gardens, and a children’s play area will provide more than 68,000 sf of open space.

The project is targeting LEED Silver certification and will provide 50% of its structures with green roofs (including both residential towers). Other sustainable features include 75% diversion of construction waste from landfills, a 50% reduction in potable water use for irrigation, and use of recycled building materials.

The site, bordered by Fullerton Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, Orchard Street, and Halsted Street, will have ready access to the Fullerton train stop (red/brown/purple CTA lines). Bike storage and bike/car ride share programs will also be provided.

Hines and McCaffery interests are the joint developers for the project.
