Lincoln Park vintage building sold for $2,325,000 near old Children's Memorial now demolished

2252 N Orchard was recently torn down.  The six unit vintage apartment building was sold for $2,325,000. A  five unit condo building will take it's place. All photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty unless otherwise noted.

Foundation and framing has begun on a new five unit condo building.

We posted on the day 2252 N Orchard was getting torn down.  Last week we passed by the site and the structure adjacent to the Chipotle is now gone.

2244 N Orchard the last day standing.

It seems every old building and vintage mixed use retail block near or on Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park has been - or will be - demolished for redevelopment. It is astonishing.  I'll share some photos of the Children's Memorial site development across the street from this property later today.

One of  fifty-one lighthouses on display along the Mag Mile, Gold Coast and Streeterville (all photos Eric Rojas, Bob DePalma, Kale Realty). 
We took a good look at the newest public art along the Mag Mile this weekend.  Fifty-one lighthouses are on display along Michigan Avenue this summer.  The Chicago Lighthouse sponsored art features visually impaired and bling artists.  The lighthouses will be auctioned off at the end of their run.  Learn more how to donate and bid here!
