It’s been a little while since we’ve heard about Riverline—the mega South Loop mixed-use development in the works that will totally redefine the neighborhood as we know it. But late last week, new details emerged about the project that directly relate to when we might finally see work for this massive undertaking begin.
According to a release from CMK Companies and Lendlease, the partnering developers for the project, groundbreaking for Riverline is finally expected to happen around the middle of next month, with the first phase expected to include two residential towers, 60 new townhouses, and a 3.5 acre riverfront park.
Designed by Perkins+Will, Riverline will encompass a 14-acre parcel that currently acts as the last major development opportunity along the South Branch of the Chicago River. Once finished, the new master planned community will feature 3,600 new residences, which of course will include a nice mix of both condos and townhouse residences.
