While the new mega tower dubbed Vista Tower has been getting a ton of headlines recently, another massive new development is also about to get underway in Chicago soon as well. According to recent reports, developers CMK Companies and Lendlease are planning to break ground next month on Riverline—a massive new project that will bring 3,600 new residences to the South Loop once finished.
If you haven’t already seen the renderings, the new riverfront project is certainly a jaw-dropper to say the least, not to mention one of the largest and most ambitious new projects to be developed in downtown Chicago in quite some time. Riverine will encompass about 14 acres and is designed by Perkins+Will.
The first phase of Riverline will include two towers, 60 townhouses, and a fabulous 3.5 acre riverfront park, but don’t look for a completion date anytime soon. Even if all goes according to plan, it’ll likely be a couple years before first units are delivered.
