More details were recently announced regarding Sterling Bay’s massive new Lincoln Yards development, which if completed will transform nearly 53 ares along the north branch of the Chicago River.
According to a report from Curbed, Sterling Bay is planning to add a jaw-dropping 12 million square feet of residential, commercial, and retail space in all, which would bring 5,000 residential units, 23,000 on-site jobs, and roughly 6,200 parking spaces to the former industrial site.
The average building height at Lincoln Yards is planned to measure just 300 feet, although some of the development’s largest towers could reach 700 or 800 feet, according to developers.
Renderings for the project have also been released, but final designs could change depending on future tenants.
Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Boston-based CBT are tabbed with designing the spectacular new riverfront masterplan.
