Lincoln Common welcoming four new retail tenants

Original article:

Four new retail tenants—Dearborn Denim & Apparel, Blowout Junkie, Pharmaca and Verve Wine—will soon arrive at Lincoln Common in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Co-developed by Hines and McCaffery Interests, the property recently leased retail space to Velvet Taco, Philz Coffee, Athletico, Compass, Play2Day, Kohler Waters Spa and the project’s anchor, a 33,000-square-foot Equinox.

Dearborn Denim & Apparel anticipates opening a 668-square-foot storefront at 2342 N. Lincoln Avenue this fall. The Lincoln Common boutique will be the apparel manufacturer’s third in the city. Slated to open in October 2019, luxury blowout and style bar, Blowout Junkie, will reside in a 652-square-foot space at 2340 N. Lincoln Avenue; it will be their third location in the city as well following successful businesses in River North and West Loop.

“Lincoln Common is the ideal location for us to open our newest Chicago brick-and-mortar location,” said Robert McMillan, owner of Dearborn Denim & Apparel. “We feel that Lincoln Common, between its residents and serving as a hub for enticing shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities, will attract socially conscious consumers, working parents and young professionals who like supporting local businesses and American-made products.”

Integrative, holistic pharmacy Pharmaca will occupy a 2,139-square-foot storefront at 2311 N. Lincoln Avenue by late fall 2019. Verve Wine, a New York-based retail shop founded by an expert wine merchant and master sommelier, is set to open a 4,000-square-foot retail space and wine bar in Spring 2020 at 2349 N. Lincoln Avenue, directly next to the North Tower of The Apartments at Lincoln Common.

“Our new shop at Lincoln Common will be the first Verve Wine in Chicago and our first location to have a retail store and wine bar in the same space,” said Dustin Wilson, Verve Wine co-founder and master sommelier. “This will allow guests to interact with wine in a variety of ways as we will offer a stacked schedule of classes, tastings and meet-and-greets with sommeliers each week. We know that Lincoln Park residents have an affinity for good wine, and are interested in learning, so we look forward to educating the community and providing the best wines possible.”

Just a short walk to the Fullerton CTA Station and Lake Michigan, Lincoln Common is the vibrant new anchor of Lincoln Park comprised of new buildings and restored structures to seamlessly integrate into the existing fabric of the neighborhood. Residents and the surrounding community will be regularly entertained with a robust calendar of year-round events held beneath the SOM-designed steel trellis, which rises above the central plaza of Lincoln Common, just steps from the entrances to The Apartments at Lincoln Common.
