It was just about a month ago that the south tower crane pulled out of the Lincoln Common project at 2335 and 2345 North Lincoln Avenue. Today, the north tower crane begins its long adieu.
Lincoln Common, you’ll remember is the redevelopment of the property that used to be Children’s Memorial Hospital. That hospital decamped for Streeterville a decade ago, and its ugly bulk was removed from the Lincoln Park skyline.
Replacing it, Lincoln Common by McCaffery Interests and Hines will eventually have 538 apartments, 60 condos, and 92,000 square feet of retail space.
The disassembly of the second of two tower cranes shows the project is chugging right along, with construction being handled by W.E. O’Neil.
If the weather cooperates, the crane should be gone by close of business Thursday. If mother nature decides to throw a fit Monday afternoon, tack on another day or two.
