Checking in on Lincoln Square's largest single family home development

A clearing for single family home development remains where Transfiguration Catholic church once stood in Lincoln Square. Ten new homes have been largely completed with space for nine more. The houses shown in the distance face the 2600 block of West Winnemac (All photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty)

The largest single family home development in Lincoln Square (possibly the largest ever) is over half-way complete. The planned 19 single family home development replaces the former Transfiguration of Our Lord Catholic Church building and land at 2609 West Carmen Avenue, Chicago IL 60625. That church parish was closed by the Archdiocese of Chicago in 2019 and the building demolished earlier this summer. 
Four completed single family homes one the 2600 block of West Carmen Avenue

The original development called for 24 townhomes but the zoning change needed was not approved.
According to the development web site and one home has sold and closed for $1,375,000.  It does not appear that any of the remaining nine homes are under contract (it is possible but it does not show that on the web site or MLS). Prices start at $1,295,000.  I confirmed with the listing agent the developer plans on building nine more homes on the remaining land.  The zoning would also allow for two-flat buildings.

71 single family homes have closed in Lincoln Square this year with a median price of about $1,000,000. 

Remaining land between West Carmen Ave and West Winnemac Avenue  

I will post check-ins on several ongoing developments around Lincoln Square this week (hopefully... no promises lol). Several multi-unit condo and apartment buildings are in various stages of completion.
