Home Depot 1

Daytime photo, Home Depot "urban format" on Halsted in Lincoln Park. Yes, it's two full stories (a first for the chain) and 85,000 sq ft., with some liner retail; garden is in the front, quick hardware purchases (screwdrivers, light bulbs) on one, and more involved items (paint, faucets) on two. Two levels of parking sit on the roof, behind the signage.

 

The neighbors initially opposed a proposal to build residences here, so the developer's Plan B was this. It's terribly out of scale (almost 60' tall and 80,000 sf in a three-story neighborhood), but is successful enough to warrant more.

 

Developer: JDL Development (Jim Letchinger)
