Rare modern new construction house on traditional Lincoln Square block

I noticed this new build going up on the 4800 block of North Seeley in Lincoln Square 60625. The boxy frame reveals a modern style... making it the only outwardly modern/ contemporary home on this two blocks of Seeley leading to the park. All photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty
Most new construction single family homes in Lincoln Square mimic the traditional style frame homes that line the blocks... only built larger with high-end finishes. This is especially true north of West Lawrence Avenue and east of North Western Avenue where truly contemporary modern homes are basically non-exisitant.

These modern/ contemporary builds tend to be private custom projects... meaning it is not a speculation home for sale. It's a bold choice considering the more vocal neighbors want to maintain a particular character when it comes to new construction and renovations.  I enjoy seeing modern new construction and contemporary renovations and look forward to the finished house.

Typical style of new construction in Lincoln Square
The owners are taking advantage of the revitalizing West Lawrence (a couple houses to the south) and North Damen Avenues where the nearby Mariano's grocery and LA Fitness are being followed by hip restaurants and bars. There are a lot of amenities nearby before even crossing to the popular North Lincoln Avenue dining and shopping district at Giddings Plaza.  The location is close to the CTA Damen Brown Line and Ravenswood Metra station as well at 4800 N Ravenswood, Chicago IL 60640
