The West Diversey Parkway construction zone in Lincoln Park / Lake View

A popular retail and residential mixed corridor on Lincoln Park / Lake View border is in the midst of upheaval. This commercial strip (pictured above) that once housed a Starbucks on the 600 block of West Diversey Parkway is now demolished and cleared out.  It is part of a larger redevelopment of retail space at the corner of Clark and Diversey.  See plans here from the 43rd Ward web site.

The former Market Place lot on the 500 block of West Diversey is still vacant. Developers walked from the project a couple years ago.  No update has been posted to the 43rd Ward site at this time.

508 West Diversey construction

508 West Diversey on the same block is currently under construction. 56 residential units will mean more $$$$ for the throng of local business and will help keep this a vibrant location near the lake.
