Developed by The Community Builders, this mixed-use structure will replace a former parking lot, offering 5,500 square feet of ground-level retail and 63 affordable housing units.

With its construction permit now issued, a new mixed-use development is set to rise in the center of Lincoln Square at 4715 N Western Avenue. This six-story building, led by The Community Builders, will integrate both retail and new affordable units into what is currently a parking lot.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved updated plans for the mixed-use development at 4715 N Western Avenue and details revealed for the new CTA transit plaza in Lincoln Square. Located on the northeast corner with W Leland Avenue, the project received initial funding approval from the Community Development Commission last month including the sale of the city-owned parking lot it will replace. The proposed building is being led by developer The Community Builders who have teamed up with local firm DesignBridge known for working on other affordable projects in Chicago.
