Real Estate Options
Well preserved brownstones and greystones can be found all over Lincoln Park. Some of these have remained single-family homes, but many have been converted into two to three-bedroom condos or townhomes, and have been updated with the latest features and amenities.
Some of the stately mansions which first graced the area in the late 1800s to the early 1900s remain standing to this day, alongside high-end modern single-family homes.
The eastern side of the neighborhood features a string of mid to high-rise condominiums in a wide range of architectural styles. Most were built at least 25 years ago.
Imposing vintage buildings converted into modern condos, such as The Marlborough (built in the 1920s) and 2000 N Lincoln Park West (built in the 1930s), are also part of the mix, along with newer developments like Lincoln Park 2520 completed in 2011.
Lincoln Park condos are generally older and don’t boast the state-of-the-art amenities found in its neighbors’ newer developments. For many people, however, the community’s distinct charm, beauty and tranquility are more than enough to compensate for this.
