Long vacant Lincoln Park Einstein Bros finally redeveloped

My old Lincoln Park Einstein Brothers Bagels has long been closed near the very busy intersection of Sheffield and Diversey.  With my former office about three blocks away I'd walk down here for lunch a couple days a week. Yes, there are many nearby options but I like bagel sandwiches.

The former Einstein Bagels viewed from the CTA Diversey Brown Line platform.
The freestanding building with rare surface parking lot at 933 W Diversey is being renovated.  Permits show work approved from a physician's urgent car clinic. 
It's a great location adjacent to the CTA Brown Line. It's good to see a medical clinic near easy public transportation in a busy urban area. We hope it serves the public well.

Condos and rental apartments in this location don't come cheap.  Five condos recently under contract or have been sold within a couple blocks of the clinic range in price from $419,000 to $839,000.  A newer construction 3 bedrooms, two baths condo nearby rented for $3,400.

The Diversey/ Halsted, Diversey/ Sheffield intersections comprise a great place to live with terrific service, retail, food and transportation options.
