My tour of new construction multi-unit apartments and condos around Lincoln Square continues! A 40 unit building was proposed for 5214-5224 N Lincoln Avenue back in 2020.  Construction finally began last week.  The building is close to the North Lincoln / West Foster intersection and adjacent to a strip mall with a Dunkin Donuts, orthodontist and a bubble tea place among other storefronts.  To the north is the Diplomat Motel which was bought by the city and will become a transitional shelter for homeless.  Tony's Fresh Market is across the street.

The old strip mall at 5214 N Lincoln just North of West Foster Avenue back in 2023 prior to demolition. 

All told there are at least 107 condo and apartment units in development near the corner of  Lincoln and Foster! The new residents are great for local business, vibrancy and tax revenue.  The buildings make good use of the former one story strip malls and eye-sore properties.

To buy, sell, rent and invest on the North Side of Chicago and near suburbs please reach out  I'm happy to answer your questions.
