Renderings have been revealed for The Reed, the second residential tower at Southbank, as the entire development takes the 11th spot in YIMBY’s Chicago’s tallest developments countdown. Located on a 7.5-acre, waterfront site, Southbank is a megadevelopment that was split off from the original Riverline joint venture development by Lendlease and CMK Companies. The parcel is bound by W Harrison Street, S Wells Street, W Polk Street, and the Chicago River.
Fencing has been spotted at the future 7.5-acre site of Southbank, which is the northern half of the originally planned Riverline development in South Loop. In 2019, Riverline was split into two parts by its co-developers, Lendlease and CMK.
YIMBY has new photos of the site where Lendlease plans to build out the remainder of the northern portion of the Riverline complex. The seven-acre plot of land is already occupied by a walkway, a small park, and The Cooper, addressed as 720 S Wells Street, one of the five residential buildings planned for the property.
