Foundation permits have been issued for a three-story daycare center at 2745 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park. Filed under the owner Kensington Lincoln Park Building LLC, the commercial development will occupy the site of a previously demolished trio of masonry structures. Details regarding the size of the building footprint and its square footage are not currently known. However, the parcel’s zoning designation allows for a floor area ratio of up to 2.2, meaning that the total building’s floor space may be up to 2.2 times that of the site itself.
Lance E. Lauderdale is listed as the architect. Details regarding the daycare’s design have not yet been revealed.
