September Groundbreaking Announced for Covent Hotel Redevelopment in Lincoln Park

After six years of approvals and planning, construction is set to begin on the mixed-use Covent Hotel redevelopment this September. Planned by NHP Foundation, who had purchased the property in 2016, in partnership with Drummond Development, the project at 2653 N Clark Street in Lincoln Park will reuse the existing Covent Hotel building while adding a new seven-story edifice to the parking lot behind the existing building. Overseen by Weese Langley Weese Architects, the historic Covent Hotel is being renovated from 64 SRO units into 30 affordable studio apartments. The street-facing ground level will also provide 4,700 square feet of retail space along Clark Street.

Demolition Complete for Former Cenacle Retreat & Conference Center at 513 W Fullerton Avenue in Lincoln Park

Demolition has completed at 513 W Fullerton Avenue in Lincoln Park, the former site of the Cenacle Retreat & Conference Center. Originally developed in 1967, the property was occupied by multiple masonry structures rising seven stories high. While deemed architecturally significant with their modernist designs by Charles Pope, the structures received demolition approval from Commission on Chicago Landmarks anyway. Following the approval, a single wrecking permit was issued this past January. The former owners, The Cenacle Sisters, have long used the complex as a retreat to care for their aging nun population, and chose to sell the property to help fund care for their members.
