Sterling Bay Falls Short In Attempt To Build Community Support For Lincoln Yards

Written by Bisnow/Brian Rogal

Sterling Bay's development team faced a full house Nov. 29.

The developers had already publicized their revised outline for the former Finkl Steelsite along the Chicago River, first unveiled in July, so there were no real surprises. Sterling Bay boosted the amount of park space, removed two buildings from the proposal, and cut down the high-rises from 800 feet to a maximum of 650 feet.

Block Clubs of Lincoln Park Unite!

SNA has setup a new Lincoln Park Block Club website for new or established block clubs in Lincoln Park where we can communicate safety issues, crimes, new ideas and general concerns between other block clubs in Lincoln Park.  People who form block clubs are concerned and care about their communities and share information, identify concerns and act collectively to address those concerns. “We cannot overcome what we ignore.” If we stay connected and communicate issues we will be vigilant and stronger.
