Renderings have been revealed for a proposed residential development located at 4600 N Marine Drive in Uptown. Poised to replace an existing parking lot, the building will rise at the intersection of N Marine Drive and W Wilson Avenue. Lincoln Property Company is the developer behind the proposal.
Designed by Valerio Dewalt Train, the new building will be a 12-story residential building with 314 rental units. The structure will rise 159 feet and include 136 parking spaces. The developer plans to provide eight affordable units on site and pay into the affordable housing fund to cover the rest of their affordable requirement.
The building footprint is approximately 38,000 square feet, taking up most of the 43,000-square-foot site. The design features a mix of glass, metal, and masonry materials, with the building topped by a green roof. There will be a curb cut along N Clarendon Avenue, which will connect to an access drive that would serve for loading access. Parking access will be from N Clarendon Avenue, while bike parking and storage access from N Marine Drive.
CTA access near the site includes multiple options. The 78, 136, and 146 CTA bus routes, accessed at the Marine Drive and Wilson stop, are located on the southeastern edge of the site. Route 148, accessed at the Clarendon and Wilson stop, is located on the western edge of the site. The Wilson CTA L station, serviced by the Red and Purple Lines, can be reached by a ten-minute walk from the site.
The proposal will require an amendment to the planned development and a possible rezoning. The project will require these approvals before moving forward with permitting and construction. An official timeline for construction has not been announced.

What’s with the weird ‘yard’ on the one side of the building?
Could there be any uglier addition to the lakefront?
LSD / Marine Drive is too important to make this big of a mistake, and, why not make it
a proud building. This design is terrible.
