I think you mean Lincoln Square is a 15 minute walk away, not Lincoln Park.
Hi Nick, thanks for your comment and we have corrected the typo
Love this bulking of transit adjacent density. Lawrence is shaping up really well in this stretch.
What was an open area to park cars next to a Chase Bank is changing Ravenswood.
it is good for buyers, but bad for the quiet neighborhood where children and teens walk to school.
What neighbors are against is to be recognized. They want to be an area where buses and stores close at midnight.
