The new transit-oriented development coming to Lincoln Avenue next to the Paulina Brown Line station has already gone through a couple of design iterations, but these renderings depict what the final product will look like. The first major design change was chopping off two floors, going from seven to five stories, and now there are just a some fairly big aesthetic changes to the building's front facade. While it's not exactly the sliced minimalism seen on the Optima Center, OneEleven and the future biomedical research center at Northwestern's Streeterville campus, Hirsch Associates' design for 3400 Lincoln seems to borrow the idea of sliced minimalism and incorporate it into this new development. In addition to the unbroken, zig-zagging line that climbs the facade, the building's northeast corner has a glass spine that angles out towards Lincoln Avenue, to offer residents sweeping views of the corridor.
