2658 – 2670 NORTH LINCOLN
The parcel located at 2658-70 North Lincoln Avenue is the site of the former Lincoln Park Gas Station as well as a vacant structure to the south of it, going from the south corner of Lincoln and Seminary to the alleys to the south.
This proposal seeks approvals for a five-story mixed-use building and a zoning change from the present B3-2 to a proposed B3-3 designation. The location falls within a transit served location, which allows for reduced parking under Transit Oriented Development (TOD) guidelines.
Prior public meetings were held in 2017 and 2018, but we rejected the proposals based on community feedback and concerns. The revised 2021 proposal includes more open space on the ground level, 36 residential units, 18 parking stalls, and 1721sq.ft. of commercial space on the corner of Seminary and Lincoln Avenue.
Below is the presentation shown during the community meeting held virtually on July 8, 2021.
The development proposal seeks approvals for a four-story mixed-use building containing 36 residential units, 19 parking stalls and 2,240 square feet of ground-level commercial space that would front onto Lincoln Avenue. In addition, the proposal calls for residential “duplex” units on Seminary Street.
Given this proposal falls within a transit-served location, it allows for reduced parking under Transit Oriented Development (T.O.D.) guidelines, and given the proposed development would merge two parcels into a single structure, they seek a zoning change from the current B3-2 designation to a B3-3 designation.
This was the second iteration for a development proposal at this location, following denials issued in 2017. This proposal was also rejected based on community feedback. Click below to see the presentation shown in the April 3rd, 2018 community meeting.
The applicant sought to redevelop the current gas station and the adjacent parcel into a four-story mixed-use structure containing 45 residential units, 17 parking stalls and approximately 6500 square feet of ground level commercial space that would front onto both Lincoln Avenue and Seminary Street. The applicant sought a zoning change from the current B3-2 designation to a B3-3 designation.
