The construction of 1400 S Wabash Avenue is well underway in the South Loop, replacing a long-empty vacant lot. CMK Companies is developing this mixed-use project, which will comprise of a ground-level retail component and 299 rental units on the upper floors.
Core construction has reached its full height for a 41-story, 440-unit tower known as “The Reed” at 234 W Polk Street in South Loop. Developed by Lendlease, the tower is the second residential building within Lendlease’s seven-acre Southbank master plan. This project has also added public amenities to the area including two acres of park land and a riverwalk running alongside the Chicago River’s south branch.
Structural work has reached the 16th floor of a 21-story mixed-use building at 166 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market District. Developed by Greystar, the 241-foot high rise will be primarily apartments atop ground-level retail space. The current construction marks the second phase of a two-part scheme, whose first installment is the 11-story mixed-use building directly across Aberdeen Street.
Metal paneling, glass, and painted concrete are all now visible for The Reed at Southbank, a 41-story residential building rising at 234 W Polk Street in South Loop. Developed by Lendlease, Southbank itself refers to a larger four-building masterplan that split off from CMK‘s planned Riverline development just to the south. This Southbank masterplan also comes with an extended stretch of Riverwalk and a small urban park located in its center.
This week, YIMBY toured the construction site at 1400 S Wabash Avenue, which will give rise to a 30-story mixed-use high rise in South Loop. Developed by CMK Companies, the 305-foot-tall tower will add to South Loop’s growing skyline cluster, alongside the 768-foot-tall 1000M apartment building that’s rising nearby.
