The name “Lincoln Square” usually conjures images of the busy commercial intersection of Lincoln, Western and Lawrence avenues, but Rockwell Crossing, the small commercial district surrounding the Rockwell Brown Line station, is the main attraction for residents of Washtenaw on the Park, says Coldwell Banker agent Gayle Alexander.
Alexander says that Rockwell Crossing has plenty of small shops and cafes, just like Lincoln Avenue, but it’s just a three-block walk from Washtenaw on the Park, which is located at 4755 N Washtenaw Ave in Lincoln Square.
Yo first covered Washtenaw on the Park more than two years ago, when Joel Hoglund questioned the development’s proximity to a park. Alexander says the development’s name refers to Gross Park, an acre-and-a-half park across the street. According to the Chicago Park District Web site, the park has a playground, ball courts and fields, and a field house.
Coldwell Banker took over sales at Washtenaw on the Park around Halloween, and Alexander’s sales team has since redesigned the building’s models and spruced up its hallways. Alexander says the pricing has been adjusted since the change (although she doesn’t specify by how much), and garage parking is now included as an incentive.
The 16 remaining homes include five one-bedroom units with one or 1.5 baths and 11 two-bedroom / two-bath units. The homes are priced from the $260s to the $410s.
