A plan to demolish the Lincoln Centre retail and condo development on Lincoln Avenue and replace it with a new apartment project has returned with a new design and other key changes. Originally proposed early last year, the project from Baker Development has dropped the total unit count from 225 to 200 apartments, while chopping off nearly 50 parking spaces, DNAinfo reports. Revived as a transit-oriented development, the project would provide just 138 parking spaces that would be shared between residents and retail tenants. The design has also changed, going from a monolithic 11 story blue glass box to a 10 story mixed-material structure that features a large courtyard in the center. While the project has been in its planning and design phase for well over a year, it may not be until next year when the developer can break ground.
