On July 18th, Sterling Bay unveiled its vision for Lincoln Yards - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that has the potential to transform a swatch of old manufacturing properties into a new urban destination. 



Lincoln Yards is centrally located within the northside of Chicago along the North Branch of the Chicago River. Specifically, Lincoln Yards is bounded by the Kennedy Expressway to the west; Webster Avenue to the north; Clybourn Avenue to the east; and North Avenue to the south. The area is in close proximity to all major modes of transportation in Chicago including Metra commuter trains, CTA ‘L’ stations and bus stops, I-90/I-94, water taxi transportation and the 606 bike trail.


Lincoln Yards is a centrally located, multi-modal hub for residents, businesses and visitors. Proposed improvements include:

  • New, relocated Clybourn Metra Station
  • Shuttle service to and from CTA ‘L’ stations at Armitage and North/Clybourn
  • New water taxi stops
  • Extended 606 bike trail
  • Divvy shared bike stations
  • Easy access to I-90/ I-94 (3.5 miles to the Loop, 15 miles to O'Hare, 13 miles to Midway)
  • Infrastructure improvements and congestion reduction including a revised street grid and new bridges and parking garages
