Baker Development Breaks Ground for ELEVATE Lincoln Park, IL – The First Luxury Apartment Building on Lincoln Avenue

Michele Smith
CHICAGO, IL (Nov. 8, 2016) – After demolishing the old Lincoln Centre complex on Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park earlier this year, Baker Development Corporation announced it will now begin construction on ELEVATE Lincoln Park – a mixed-use 191-unit luxury apartment building in the heart of Lincoln Park.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 1 to commemorate the significance of the project as the first luxury apartment building and Transit Oriented Development (TOD) on Lincoln Avenue, and to celebrate the positive impact it will have on the local community.

“We worked closely with Lincoln Park Alderman, Michele Smith, and the Wrightwood Neighbors Association to design a vibrant development that would transform the neighborhood,” said Dan Slack of Baker Development Corporation as he addressed the crowd at the groundbreaking.

“There hasn’t been a new apartment building constructed in Lincoln Park like ELEVATE in decades. ELEVATE will join The Lincoln Common project – at the old Children's Memorial Hospital site just a few blocks south – as a catalyst for restoring this sleepy stretch of Lincoln Avenue to its original glory,”  Slack said.
