It’s rare that a homebuyer has the opportunity to build a Chicago new construction home, let alone an enormous mansion of your dreams. Let alone a home that gives you access to a 1 ¼-acre private park. And let alone having it built by one of the best builders/developers in the city.
At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, this is a real and unique opportunity in Chicago real estate for potential homebuyers. I recently met with the representatives of Lincoln Park 2520, one of Chicago’s most anticipated new condominium buildings in Lincoln Park, and learned more about this once-in-a-lifetime chance to build a huge house or mansion that you can truly call your own.

Custom-Built Mansions in Lincoln Park

With extensive experience in helping homebuyers build new construction (check out some of my background here), I can tell you that an opportunity like this comes around once in a lifetime. The developers of Lincoln Park 2520 have appointed BGD&C to design and build custom residences on the perimeter of the 2520 development. Residents of these custom properties will be able to enjoy the privacy of their own detached home while benefiting from the amenities and services of Lincoln Park 2520, including the concierge, a fitness facility, spa, theater room, Club Lounge and more. But it’s a pretty exclusive offer—there are only 4 lots available.
Buyers who move quickly can buy one or even multiple lots, as the developer is prepared to build brand new, custom homes that fit your taste and lifestyle–from as small as 8,000 square feet up to 20,000 square feet. BGD&C is a leader in designing luxurious, custom single family homes in Chicago, and these homes will reflect the quality and elegance of the Lincoln Park 2520 buildings, which were designed by Chicago’s famed architect Lucien Lagrange. Each home is being built to achieve the residents’ dream, starting with a completely integrated process that takes the homebuyer through every detail of the construction process.

Residents of these custom-built mansions will have access to the 1 1/4 acre private park and garden on the Lincoln Park 2520 grounds.

Available Features in Custom-Built Homes

Located adjacent to the Lincoln Park 2520 grounds on Deming Place, these custom single-family homes will offer:
-Detachment: Each custom home will be private and fully detached from each other and from the Lincoln Park 2520 condominium towers.
-Large lots: There are multiple lots available, each with a minimum lot width of 81 feet.
-Garden space: These homes will have front and rear private gardens that will be 15 feet deep.
-Huge space: The typical size of the custom homes will start at 8,000 to 10,000 square feet and be up to 4 stories high. But that is just a starting point—the custom-built mansions could be up to 20,000 square feet, and the developer imagines a more typical home size of 14,000 square feet.
-Garage space: These homes will have private, secured underground garages to accommodate a minimum of five to six cars—plenty of room for the Bentley, the Porsche, the Masarati, the Rolls Royce, the Bugatti and the Lamborghini.
-Park access: There will be direct south access to a 1 ¼-acre private park with a privacy buffer.
-Amenities: Residents of the custom-built homes would have the option of benefiting from all of the services and amenities available at Lincoln Park 2520, without having to live in a high-rise building. Lincoln Park 2520 will offer a concierge, 20-seat movie theater, dog-friendly spaces like an exercise area and paw wash, steam room and saunas, a state-of-the-art fitness center and much more.
-Location: The Lincoln Park 2520 is in one of the most covetable locations in all of Chicago—right in the heart of Lincoln Park. If you have children, these homes will be right near the zoo and some of the best private schools in the city (Latin School of Chicago and Francis W. Parker, to name a few). For dining out, The Pond Restaurant is just a short walk, by the Lincoln Park Lagoon. Not to mention the nightlife, entertaining, shopping and more that the Lincoln Park neighborhood has to offer.
