A transit-oriented development (TOD) for Lincoln Avenue is no longer a proposed project—it has just received its first permit to begin construction. Announced over a year ago, the final plan will bring 36 rental units, 5,500 square feet of retail and 28 bicycle parking spaces next to the Paulina Brown Line station right on the border of the popular Lakeview and Roscoe Village neighborhoods. Originally proposed to stand at seven stories, the brick and glass building will only reach five stories when completed. The development is just one of many TODs that are in the planning or early construction stages throughout the greater North Side area. However, data has shown that the Lakeview neighborhood is an area that would benefit from having more TODs sprout up around its transit hubs.
