The owner of a shuttered Lincoln Park gas station is pursuing a plan to construct a new mixed-use, transit-oriented apartment development at 2670 N. Lincoln Avenue. While the station’s wedge-shaped lot was the center of previous redevelopment schemes, the latest plan would also incorporate the adjacent single-story former Lincoln Park Medical Supply building at 2662 N. Lincoln Avenue.

As proposed, the new four-story building would contain 45 rental units, 6500 square feet of ground floor retail space, and just 17 parking stalls due to its proximity to the Diversey CTA stop. Property owner Zafar Hussein is seeking a zoning bump for the development from B3-2 to a B3-3 designation.

An upcoming public meeting to be hosted by 43rd Ward Alderman Michele Smith and the Wrightwood Neighbors Association will discuss the proposal. The presentation is scheduled for the evening of Monday, December 4th at 6:00 p.m. at New Life Church at 1110 W. Lill Avenue, according to a notice from Smith’s office.

If approved, 2658-70 N. Lincoln Avenue would become the second Lincoln Park apartment project to take advantage of the city’s expanded 2015 Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Ordinance. It would join the 191-unit Elevate Lincoln Park apartment complex currently under construction one block to the southeast.
