Live the good life at The Orchard Luxury condominiums in historic Lincoln Park

by Melanie Kalmar

Introducing The Orchard Private Residences, the newest addition to Lincoln Common, an exciting mixed-use development on the east side of historic Lincoln Park.

Buyers will instantly fall in love with The Orchard’s elegantly appointed condominiums with custom finishes, stunning views of the city and lakefront, and expansive terraces for entertaining outdoors. Equally enticing are its incomparable amenities, highly-rated neighborhood schools and walkability to all Chicago has to offer.

The Orchard’s prime location at Lincoln Common, the former site of Children’s Memorial Hospital, brings new vitality to the famous intersection of Lincoln, Fullerton and Halsted avenues. “The Orchard sits on the eastern edge of Lincoln Common, a central gathering place for residents to enjoy events and activities, such as fitness classes, children’s concerts and outdoor movies,” says Gabrielle Cavalier, onsite sales broker, The Orchard. “And it’s anchored by shops and conveniences like Philz Coffee, Verve Wine, Equinox, Kohler Waters Spa and Pharmaca.” It also boasts a drop-in daycare facility that offers babysitting services while parents shop, a physical therapy center, unique retail shops and commercial office space.

A true neighborhood experience

Minutes from the heart of downtown Chicago’s cultural and dining attractions, Lincoln Park’s tree-lined streets, historic architecture and abundant green spaces are just part of the draw. The quiet neighborhood is home to the legendary Victory Gardens and Steppenwolf theaters, fine art galleries, incredible restaurants and the glorious lakefront. Not surprising, The Orchard has attracted many long-time residents of the area who desire a maintenance-free lifestyle and all of the amenities that come with it, without having to leave their beloved neighborhood, Cavalier explained.

“People are just wowed by the level of finish, craftsmanship and overall beauty of each residence as well as the building itself,” Cavalier says. “The Orchard offers a rare and elevated level of quality to its buyers.”

At just 7-stories high, The Orchard, 2350 N. Orchard Street, has 32 stunning single-level units, including 8 penthouses, priced from $2 million to upwards of $4 million. The homes range from 1,647 square feet to 3,758 square feet and come with two, three or four bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths and fantastic terraces equipped with gas, water and electric, as well as ceiling-mounted radiant heating for comfortable use year-round.

Embrace luxury living

Thoughtfully developed by Hines and McCaffery to meet the needs of empty nesters, young professionals and growing families, the intimate building has a door staff on duty 24/7, concierge services to handle everything from package deliveries to dog walking, and best of all, secure, heated direct-to-unit garage parking. Inconspicuous and private, The Orchard’s three elevator cores conveniently take residents directly into their units or vestibules with little to no chance of neighbors joining them on the ride up.

“We have a commitment to quality in our products, in our relationship with the community and within our own four walls,” says Dan McCaffery, CEO of McCaffery. “We are proud of what we do, or we don’t do it.”

The team of architects, designers and developers who created The Orchard reads like an industry’s Who’s Who list, from celebrated landscape architect Ted Wolff, senior principal at Confluence, to world-renowned kitchen designer Christopher Peacock to award-winning interior design firm Soucie Horner. Every buyer who tours a home at The Orchard is enthralled by the attention to detail and sophisticated elegance woven throughout the building.

“It really feels like a single-family home on one floor,” says Cadey O’Leary, listing Agent for The Orchard Private Residences and broker with Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty. “There’s nothing else like it in the market. It’s a once-in-a-generation opportunity; the crowning jewel of Lincoln Common.”

Incomparable amenities

Residents of The Orchard have direct elevator access to a 3,800 square foot rooftop amenity featuring lush foliage, glistening fountains, grilling stations and dining areas for entertaining guests. An onsite, top-of-the line fitness center has a private studio for residents to work out in a group or one-on-one with a personal trainer. Among the many perks of living at The Orchard is complete access to all of the wonderful amenities available at the two adjacent luxury apartment towers: outdoor swimming pools and hot tubs, social lounges, co-working spaces, a game room and rooftop deck elegantly equipped for entertaining large and small parties. In addition to all of that, top-floor penthouse owners have an extra outdoor terrace exclusively for them.

Gourmet kitchens

Bespoke kitchens designed by Christopher Peacock feature cabinets and accessories handcrafted in the U.S., appliances by Wolf, Sub-Zero and Cove and oversized islands large enough for prepping food and seating guests. Quartzite counters and backsplashes, under-cabinet task lighting and 60-inch tall upper cabinets and glass doors, available per plan, exude warmth and sophistication. Rounding out the look is wide-plank hardwood flooring and dramatic crown molding.

Spa-inspired bathrooms

Generously sized master baths have light marble floors with radiant heat to keep residents from catching a chill. An artfully designed soaking tub is separate from the walk-in shower with frameless glass doors and optional bench for sitting. Plumbing fixtures by Kohler and Waterworks, and polished nickel finished hardware come together in simple elegance. Secondary baths and powder rooms feature a variety of options to repeat the spa-inspired theme on a smaller scale.

Plenty of storage

Front-hall closers and all secondary bedrooms feature built-in organizers with most secondary bedrooms also offering walk-in closets. Parking spaces are built extra deep for storing bicycles and other items relegated to the garage. Even more convenient, spacious laundry rooms are equipped with LG Energy Star gas washers and dryers and plenty of cabinets for storing laundry detergent and cleaning supplies.

O’Leary anticipates residents of other popular city neighborhoods, like Streeterville and the Gold Coast, will consider moving to Lincoln Park once they visit The Orchard. “The agents who bring clients here understand Lincoln Park and the value proposition here,” she says. “It’s a true neighborhood experience close to the city.”
