An impressive new mixed-use development has been proposed for a part of Lincoln Park that already has some minor traffic issues, which seems to be the primary concern of residents who already live in the area. Introduced by architect Marc Amstadter and attorney Sara Barnes, the new project is being planned for 2300 N. Clybourn (Clybourn and Ashland), which would require a zoning change from C1-3 to C1-5.
Featuring a sleek design that’s similar to what you might expect to see built in the West Loop, the new 2300 Clybourn project could include as many as 85 rental units in addition to 9,800 square feet of ground level retail space. As it stands, 13 units would be housed on each level, with a likely configuration of three 2-bedrooms, 5 one-bedrooms, and 5 studios on each level.
Parking for 103 vehicles is also included with the project, of which 18 would be reserved for retail use, as well as additional parking space for 85 bicycles.
The proposed development sire has been unoccupied for about three years now when a Kinko’s shut down. Because 2300 N. Clybourn is still in the planning stages, no official timeline has been released regarding construction or completion.
