New Demolition Permit Issued for 1914 N Orchard Street in Lincoln Park

Street view of 1914 N Orchard Street

A demolition permit was issued last week for a three-story multi-unit masonry building and an attached garage located at 1914 N Orchard Street in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. The permit’s owner has been listed as Savane Properties, Inc. As of now, no plans appear to have been submitted to upgrade any of the zoning designations for this property and there is currently no information on any future constructions at the site.

The closest bus service is Route 73 which can be found at the intersection of Armitage & Orchard via a two-minute walk north. The nearest CTA Brown and Purple Line access are at the Armitage station via a nine-minute walk northwest. There are many popular restaurants and retail options along the Armitage Avenue corridor. Oz Park is a mere five minutes away from the property site, providing green space access among the retail options.

Precision Excavation is serving as the demolition contractor. At the time of this writing, no construction permits have been issued or filed, and an anticipated completion date has not yet been announced for the project.

  1. Wow even the newer townhomes are already getting torn down? What a weird cycle of material usage, but hopefully the new building has a bonafide architect working on it.

  2. It should be illegal to tear down any home without also providing a plan to replace it, this is how we end up with vacant lots for decades

    • You beat me to it, I was going to say the exact same thing. This is how a city block dies. Having dead properties for potentially years is really toxic for maintaining a healthy area.

  3. How Lincoln Park was allowed to be hijacked and so much of it kept to medium density multi-family and single-family homes with widespread demolitions and deconversions is truly mind-boggling. The neighborhood should be at double its current population if the agenda in place wasn’t upheld for so many decades.

    • Well the joke’s on the residents of Lincoln Park – it’s really quite bland and no longer supporting very much interesting retail (or retail at all) besides the national chain brands. Sure it’s got a great location, but they’re doing a great job turning it into a very bland bedroom community.

  4. So I’m guessing this will be replaced by a cheaply made steel and glass rectangle, and be advertised as luxury apartments?
