Demolition permits were recently issued for Lux Properties’ multi-unit brick building at 2121 N Fremont Street, located near the center of Lincoln Park.
Google Maps imagery shows the existing masonry to contain four levels, despite the filing indicating just three. A possible explanation for this discrepancy is that the ground floor appears to be partially below-grade, which may have been discounted from the figure.
The property includes a variety of nearby bus stops, including a three-minute walk northwest to Route 37’s Webster & Bissell, a four-minute walk southeast to Route 8’s Halsted & Dickens, a four-minute walk south to Route 73’s Armitage & Fremont, and a five-minute walk northeast to Route 74’s Webster & Halsted. The nearest CTA L stop is the Brown and Purple Lines’ Armitage station, a five-minute walk southwest. Those two lines, as well as the Red Line, can also be found via an eight-minute walk northwest to Fullerton station.
Access to outdoor space includes a five-minute walk east to the 14.5-acre Oz Park, as well as a 19-minute walk directly east to the Lincoln Park Zoo, with the lake shore just beyond.
Bridges Excavating Inc. will serve as the wrecking contractor, and Ontime Expediting as the expeditor. Lux Properties has not indicated plans for the future of the site, thought the lot is zoned for RT-4, which can accommodate townhomes, smaller multi-unit buildings, and single-family residential buildings up to 38 feet high.
