Structural work is now at the second floor for a new four-story mixed-use development at 2317 N Clark Street in Lincoln Park. 2300 N Clark LLC has been listed as the owner according to construction permits approved this past February and May.
The project will yield a total of 2,350 square feet of retail, along with 35 apartments on the second through fourth floors. These units will come as one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts, at an average of 780 square feet.
With 2RZ Architecture behind the design, the structure adds a 50-foot contemporary frontage that complements surrounding brick midrises along the Clark Street corridor. The ground floor is clad in a pastel grey brick facade, underneath a variably-textured metal exterior lining the upper three levels. The street-facing side has been punctuated by a recessed terrace and stacked balconies, as well as large sections of loft-style windows.
Parking will provide 28 spaces within a first-floor rear garage. Public transit access includes bus stops for Routes 22 and 36, situated along the Clark & Belden intersection just paces to the southeast. Closest CTA L service is available via a 15-minute walk west to Fullerton station, with access to all three of the Red, Purple, and Brown Lines.
The property lies close to several notable outdoor spaces, such as the Lincoln Park Zoo via a five-minute walk southeast, the North Pond Nature Sanctuary via a seven-minute walk northeast, and the Lakefront Trail via a 15-minute walk east.
The aforementioned permits had indicated a total construction cost of just under $5 million. With Star Development serving as general contractor, an exact completion date is not yet known.
