Lincoln Avenue Corridor PlanChicago, Illinois
The Lakota Group is currently developing a Lincoln Avenue Corridor Plan to guide improvements within this historic corridor in the heart of Lincoln Park. Given the significant changes along Lincoln Avenue in the area, from the redevelopment of the former Children’s Memorial Hospital and the ELEVATE mixed-use project, to the construction of the new DePaul Music School, now is a critical time to reassess this corridor and plan for its future. Lakota recently completed an assessment of the existing physical, demographic, transportation, and market conditions as a baseline to forming the plan. Currently, concepts and strategies are being developed for physical enhancements and placemaking, transportation improvements, branding and marketing, and business attraction with a focus on the corridor from Webster Avenue on the south to Diversey Parkway on the north.
