2800 Lincoln

This 5 story, 9 unit condo building is 2800 Lincoln and is planned for the corner of Diversey Parkway and Lincoln Avenue in Chicago, Illinois.  Designed by Product Architects, this contemporary green building is aiming for LEED Silver, and might even catch LEED Gold.  2800 Lincoln has a green roof, large terraces, solar panels, solar thermal hot water heating, and will be powered, in part, by geothermal energy (see diagram below).  Yo Chicago reports that the developer, Helios Realty and Development, plans to break ground in the next month or two and has a lease for the ground-floor retail space in the works. 

2800 Lincoln is expected to achieve 50% energy savings as compared to a comparable building that meets the minimum standards of 2004 IEC.  It’ll also have excellent indoor environmental quality with abundant natural lighting and views, operable windows, and non-toxic and low-VOC coatings, adhesives, and fibers. 

Two bedroom, two bath units start at about $490,000, with three bedroom, three bath units at around $780,000.  Three are already tied up, so you’ll have to hurry if you want to catch one of the remaining six.
