Lincoln Common apartments debut in Lincoln Park

The first rental building in the Lincoln Common development opened Monday on the site of the old Children’s Memorial Hospital in Lincoln Park. The 20-story apartment building from McCaffery Interests and Hines will be joined in a few weeks by a nearly identical rental building in the mixed-use development. A seven-story condo building is expected to break ground soon in the development, which also will include a six-story office building, a senior living facility and more than 100,000 square feet of office and retail space.

Developer sues over blocked Mundelein senior housing project

Libertyville-based The DeBruler Company is suing the village of Mundelein to build a 45-unit apartment building for low-income seniors downtown. Vice President Tim DeBruler said the firm bought the vacant 1.4-acre parcel from an investment firm that previously acquired the property in a government tax deed auction. But village officials claim they are still bound by a 13-year-old agreement with a prior owner who wanted to build 27 townhomes on the site, prompting DeBruler to sue. [Mundelein Review]
