Old Children's Hospital garage will be shops at Lincoln Park's massive Lincoln Common

I think the additional ground floor retail and the attractive new construction office building really improves the streetscape. All photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty
The old parking garage for the former Children's Memorial Hospital gets a new look with shops, restaurants and an adjacent office building. This is a part of the Lincoln Common development I really like.  The garage structure has always been stark and unattractive. My wife used the garage when she worked on the old main campus. One good thing is the roof had great views of the Chicago Air Show practice days 😀

It's all starting to take shape now. This will be a bustling strip and the little Starbucks space across the street may not cut it!

Check out the rendering HERE

I can see the Lincoln/ Belden Starbucks currently across the street moving into one of the new commercial spaces.

Above is a photo of the elevator column before additional ground floor retail structures were added (below).

Check out the towers of Lincoln Commons below located across from the parking structure and new retail.

Here you can see West Fullerton in the foreground and the parking structure along North Lincoln Avenue to the right of the photo. The photo is taken from the challenging Lincoln/Halsted/ Fullerton intersection
