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.
Construction permits have been issued for a three-story residential building at 2820 W Lyndale Street, located in Palmer Square. Currently, a single-story frame building occupies the site. However the narrow plot size and surrounding vacant lots may indicate that the development will involve multiple parcels.
Construction is close to topping out for the 562-foot-tall Cirrus in Lakeshore East as Chicago’s 12th tallest development. Officially addressed at 211 N Harbor Drive, Cirrus is part of the larger Lakeshore East development within the Parcels IJKL. The site sits between N Harbor Drive and Lake Shore Drive, just south of the multi-level Wacker Drive. The tower is being developed by Lendlease and Magellan Development Group, with bKL Architecture in charge of the design.
