The Village of Lincolnwood Mayor and Board of Trustees approved the Final Planned Unit Development (PUD) for the majority of the District 1860 Site at the November 19, 2019 Village Board meeting. The last remaining piece in the final approval process is the hotel, which will be located on Lincoln Avenue, north of the proposed Village Green. It is anticipated that the hotel will be submitted for final approval in the next two months, after building design details have been approved by the hotel brand. For the past 18 months the Village has been working with Tucker Development, developer for the former Purple Hotel Site, located at the northeast intersection of Lincoln and Touhy Avenues.
The PUD clears the way for the construction of the new development in early 2020. The District 1860 site envisions a new multi-use facility that includes commercial space, service areas, retail, restaurants, residential units, and a hotel.
In regards to this development, Mayor Bass said, “This is the culmination of 18 months of hard work by elected officials, Commissioners, the Developer Rich Tucker, and staff to achieve this historic and monumental feat.” Mayor Bass continued, “During this almost two year process, I’ve had the pleasure of working directly with Rich Tucker to guide this project from inception to completion. I want to thank those elected officials, committees and staff who helped make this project possible and look forward to seeing this hard work come to fruition starting in early 2020.”
It is anticipated that construction of the entire development will take approximately 18 months to complete. As tenants are announced for the project, that information will be shared with the public, at the permission of the Developer.
The status of the development will be provided through the Village’s various social media platforms and website. To view the formal press release, please click here.
