Decaying, destitute and days away from condemnation and certain demise, The Lincoln Apartments (1222 Locust Street) has been revitalized into a modern and sophisticated 44-unit luxury apartment community in the heart of Midtown Village.
The Lincoln was a popular apartment building in the neighborhood since the early 1900’s until 2006 when a fire gutted the Art Deco Style building, and remained that way until PRDC acquired it in 2013, and saved it.
PRDC put plans in motion almost immediately, and they did a great job. I had friends who lived in the building, and although it was decent living, it was dated. The space is so gorgeous now, it’s the best boutique apartment building in the City, they did a great job restoring the building to it’s original grandeur.
PRDC Properties is a full-service real estate development and management company transforming under-utilized real estate into vibrant resident and commercial communities across the region. To learn more, visit http://www.prdcproperties.com

PRDC Properties has maintained the historic character of the building by restoring the original, and nearly 125-year old, facade. The spacious apartments are designed to maximize living space and are appointed with keyless entry,
stainless steel appliances, built-in closets and a voice and video enabled intercom system.

The ribbon cutting included remarks by PRDC Properties CEO David Perlman and Councilman Allan Domb. In describing the vision for the Lincoln, David Perlman, CEO of PRDC Properties, “saw the need and opportunity to bring a uniquely differentiated residential experience to the market. The end product is what can be achieved when the public and private communities work together collectively.”
