Sold for $3,140,000 Lincoln Park brewery building torn down for new development

The long time Lincoln Park site of various bars, brew pubs and bowling has been has been torn down for development. 

The Burnt City building (also formerly The Lucky Strike AKA Seven Ten Lounge etc...) in Lincoln Park at 2747 North Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park has been torn down. According to public records the land (2747-2749 North Lincoln Ave) was sold for $3,140,000 in 2017. We passed the site this past week while on condo showings with a Lincoln Park buyer.

I poked around but have yet to find out what will be built on the site. I was never a big fan of the businesses here. However I'm no stranger to Delilah's on the block... a rare hold out of my youth.

Update! Land sold for $4.4M... 80 units at 450 West Belmont in Lakeview near completion

Our Lakeview condo search for a client brought us past a new construction building taking full shape. 450 West Belmont is stepping out among the vintage buildings in East Lakeview. The 80 unit rental apartment development adds highly demanded new construction units among the 60s built high-rise buildings the area is known for. We reported the original vintage buildings and lots (450-454 West Belmont) were sold for $4.4M. 

On a related note I often wonder how long those 60s high-rise building along Lake Shore Drive will last.  They are not necessarily cheap to maintain! Will they last 100 years like the vintage mid-rise buildings we often revere?  

New Gold Coast retail development to service high end condo dwellers

Gold Coast is getting shiner and "shoppier" again.  We spotted construction progress while delivering earnest money checks nearby.  The new three story retail development at State and Elm is taking shape. Curbed has the story from last October with a good photo of the old building that was torn down (sad trombone). According to the developer  Newcastle Limited's site Rumble Boxing has signed on. A restaurant space with patio is slated for the top floor. Additional retail is available for lease.

The retail is adjacent to the very successful, upper bracket 4 East Elm residential condo building. Of the six sold and for sale condos over the last 12 months the median price is about $3.25M.
