Meyer Delicatessen Lincoln Square

Fountain View of Lincoln Square is all but sold out to those looking for cutting edge green technology for their living style.   With only 5 residences left in this anchor building to Giddings Plaza, the condo building in the heart of this northside Chicago neighborhood is surrounded by a thriving commercial district.  A fairly recent addition to the Fountain View of Lincoln Square commercial / retail portion of the building is Marbles, The Brain Store, a cool boutique for puzzles and thought provoking games.

Meanwhile, the former Delicatessen Meyer, a longtime Lincoln Square favorite, is expected to reopen next week with a new owner and a rooftop deck that will serve food and alcohol.  Gene’s Sausage Shop & Delicatessen Inc. is scheduled to open November 7th to much acclaim in this German / European influenced corner of Chicago.

Ben Ranney, developer of the LEED registered condo building is excited the booming neighborhood:  “Just in the past few months there have been a bunch of new retail shop openings of On the Route Bicycles, Steve Quick Jeweler, a new woman’s clothing boutique called DLR and a French bistro called LM. A couple of local businesses have also expanded (Enjoy, Garcia’s) and it appears that the grand opening of the Gene’s Sausage emporium is finally imminent – word on the street is that they’ll have a grand opening any day now.”

“It’s really encouraging to see the neighborhood thriving in these challenging times.” Ranney said.  Terra Firma’s investment in this neighborhood is a win-win and just like their many other successful, sustainable developments, Fountain View of Lincoln Square provides an example of positive redevelopment amongst generations old traditions.
