First Ultra Luxury Apartment Building on Lincoln Avenue Begins Construction, ELEVATE Lincoln Park to Deliver Summer 2017
A once proud stretch of Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park will be undergoing a transformation this March as Baker Development Corporation demolishes the old Lincoln Centre complex and begins construction on ELEVATE Lincoln Park – a mixed-use 191- unit luxury apartment building in the heart of Lincoln Park.
“Lincoln Avenue is the center of Lincoln Park and deserves an elegant building that will be the catalyst for restoring this portion of Lincoln Avenue to its original glory,” said Aaron Galvin of Luxury Living Chicago Realty, the exclusive leasing brokerage for ELEVATE Lincoln Park. “As the neighborhood’s first Class “A” luxury apartment building, ELEVATE will offer upscale finishes and high-end amenities that will rival other luxury apartments in Chicago. ELEVATE is located just a few steps from iconic neighborhood entertainment venues such as the Apollo Theater, Victory Gardens Theater and the Lincoln Hall as well as the convenience of being two short blocks to the CTA’s Fullerton Avenue train station.”
Scheduled for occupancy the summer of 2017, ELEVATE Lincoln Park’s 16,300 square feet retail area will be located at 2518-36 N. Lincoln Avenue, adjacent to the newly renovated Apollo Theater, while residents will have an exclusive entrance at 930 W. Altgeld Street. The residential component will consist of a wide array of unit-types including a mix of studios; convertibles; one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Sixteen penthouse units on the tenth floor will include three extraordinary penthouse duplexes that feature elegant finishes, a gourmet kitchen, a large master suite, private outdoor space and spectacular views of the Chicago skyline.
“We worked closely with the Wrightwood Neighbors Association to design a vibrant development that would transform the neighborhood,” said development partner, Dan Slack of Baker Development Corporation. “The housing market has changed over the last 10 years with more people choosing to rent over owning. There hasn’t been a new apartment building constructed in Lincoln Park like ELEVATE in decades. We expect that ELEVATE will be setting the bar for luxury apartment living.”
ELEVATE will offer its residents a full suite of building amenities designed to enhance and complement their daily lives. Outdoor areas will feature a large courtyard that overlooks Lincoln Avenue and features lounging areas, grills and a fire pit – all nestled in a lush landscaped setting. A roof top plunge pool complete with cabanas, grilling areas and a fire pit will offer an inviting respite on hot summer days while an outdoor dog walk will create an added level of convenience for pet owners year around.
Adjacent to the pool deck will be a state-of-the-art fitness center that will provide a complete health club experience with a yoga room and on-demand fitness classes. Complementing the indoor experience will be an indoor party room with a demonstration kitchen, built-in seating areas with free Wi-Fi for those who choose to work from the comfort of home.
