Movement Lincoln Park is located at 1460 N Dayton St. in the Lincoln Park section of Chicago with an attached small private parking garage and nonpermitted street parking. It is conveniently located only two blocks from the Red Line. The new facility was developed by Chicago-based real estate company Structured Development.
“We’re proud to welcome Movement Lincoln Park as our first commercial tenant at The Shops at Big Deahl, adding to the array of active retail and recreational options in the Halsted Triangle,” said Mike Drew, co-founding principal of Structured, which has developed more than 1 million square feet in the immediate area including the adjacent NEWCITY development. “The increasingly diverse mix of uses in this corner of Lincoln Park has established it as a destination for those in search of an active urban lifestyle. They also align with the city’s vision of activating the North Branch of the Chicago River through projects like the Wild Mile, which is located immediately west of the Big Deahl site. Such recreational offerings add to the desirability of the neighborhood and its future as a 24-hour community of work, live, and play.”
