Rare modern new construction house on traditional Lincoln Square block

I noticed this new build going up on the 4800 block of North Seeley in Lincoln Square 60625. The boxy frame reveals a modern style... making it the only...

...is close to the CTA Damen Brown Line and Ravenswood Metra station as well at 4800 N Ravenswood, Chicago IL 60640

  • I swear I've seen the same house (also in the Tyvek stage) over on 4800+ California. Boxy with that odd square second floor pop-out is the new hip design I guess. That block has a few one-to-two story conversions going on.

  • Marcin Talaga Realtor/General Contractor

    I personally wish more developers would choose to rehab and rebuild similar style homes to a neighborhood, rather than mix 2015 "smart home" designs into neighborhoods. Some of the homes that are being built just don't fit!

Infant Childcare in Ravenswood - Help New Expecting Parents

We are relatively new to the neighborhood (Damen and Lawrence) and also found out that we are now expecting our first child. In doing some research it seems that Childcare in the area has been turning over ownership and was wondering if anyone has recommendations or currently has an infant in a program nearby.

Being new to the area and first time parents, any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for those with feedback and comments.

  • I agree - join NPN (http://www.npnparents.org/) and search the directory and the forum archives. There are lots of great places in the neighborhood. Congrats and good luck!

  • Congratulations on your happy news! Another vote for Sunnyside Child Care Center-- our son is in one of the infant rooms there and we're very happy with his care.

    So sad to see the aesthetic of the block ruined, but at least this home blends in better than the gulag a few doors west... In fact, the latter never even looks occupied. Though I walk by it nearly every day, since construction ended, I've never seen signs of life. What's the use of having $1 million homes if no one buys/occupies them? Down the block, just around the SE corner on Oakley, a home has stood vacant since I moved into the area nearly 7 years ago. That was probably the first listed over $1 million around here, but then the recession hit. Now, it still has its stunning rear deck, but the front is overgrown with weeds. It's almost ghostly.

  • Covering All The Bases for Safety

    Mr. Caballero is asking for $1996.82:
    My students need basic equipment to have a functional baseball team. They need helmets, baseballs, and catcher's gear to be able to practice and play safely.

  • Wendy Small-town living in the big city

    Type in the promo code SPARK when you make a donation, and your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar. What a great way to support your neighborhood high school!

  • AW Busy mom

    Teenage kids need supervised, character-building activities like this. I donated to support positive activities in my local high school -- I don't have a child at this school and I don't really enjoy baseball, but I understand how important this is for these young men. I hope others in the neighborhood can give even a small amount too.

  • Wendy Small-town living in the big city

    More than half-way there, and a few more days left on the match promotion. If you give $10 to this project and enter the promo code SPARK, it will magically turn into $20 worth of baseball equipment!

Fireworks or Gunshots Saturday Night near Winnemac Park?

Around 11pm, did anyone else hear this? At first, they sounded like gunshots, but after about 20 of them in the span of two minutes, I decided it was more likely fireworks.

  • Some of them were in my alley behind 5300 block of N Bell Ave. They were def fireworks. Seriously, why fireworks in Feb?

  • Why not?
