A co-op unit at 2450 North Lakeview in Lincoln Park is currently listed for $8.95 million. (There’s a fireplace in the bathroom.)

If that’s too rich for you, a fixer-upper in the building is also on the market—for just $5.495 million.

Excitingly, the neighborhood has become more and more “vibrant” as Chicago real estate agents say.

Cars were shot up on the street outside on June 17.

A man with a gun ordered people to get out of the park a few days later.

And, early on Wednesday, a man was robbed at gunpoint outside the building’s front door.

The victim was walking the once-quiet tree-lined street on the western edge of the park near Clark and Fullerton when a man and a woman—both wearing masks—pulled out a gun and went through his pockets around 12:40 a.m.

Both offenders then fled eastbound on Fullerton in a silver vehicle, the victim said. The man’s credit cards were used about an hour after the hold-up near Armitage and Sheffield and again near North Avenue and Elston. But the duo slipped away.

Afternoon Robbery In Lakeview

Two muggers punched a man in the face and robbed him near Sheffield and School on Saturday afternoon.

The man said both offenders fled westbound on the 1000 block of West School after robbing him around 2:40 p.m.

He said both offenders were black men—one wearing a maroon shirt and the other dressed in a striped tee shirt. The second man was shorter than the first.


A North Center woman reported being robbed by three men on the corner of Belmont and Leavitt early Saturday.

The muggers took the woman’s purse and iPhone then fled northbound on Leavitt around 2:40 a.m.

She said the three offenders were black men in their late teens to early 20’s. One is 6-feet tall and he wore a white tee shirt with jeans. The other two were between 5’7” and 5’10” tall and weighed 150-160 pounds.
