A new retail structure at 2720 N Clark Street, Lincoln Park built by Centrum Partners will be leased by some high profile tenants. Banana Republic will anchor the new two story commercial building formally the site of Edge Bar and Grill.  The private Altschool based in San Francisco will open a school on the second floor by 2017 (with a tuition reported around $25,000 a year).  More retail space is available at the site. Centrum partners paid about $6 million for the property.

North Clark Street in Lincoln Park is home to great dining, bars, services and is steps to lakefront fun.  The area maintains a lot of original architecture... but all that comes at steep housing prices.  Once a strip of dive bars, music shops and basic retail and services the area has both upped it's game with higher-end businesses, national chains while maintaining local small shops and eateries.

Clark Street in Lincoln Park is one of my favorite areas to do business, eat and enjoy the lake with my kids or without. I've had years and years of great lunches at The Pasta Bowl and Frances Deli. I took these construction photos last week on the way to lunch at Five Guys at Clark and Fullerton.
