A new 5 tower megadevelopment in the South Loop has been announced:

Lend Lease and CMK Plow Ahead With Ambitious 5-Tower South Loop Plan

Quote:
Written by Editor on June 18, 2015

These two move fast.

This is the second time we’re starting an article about Lend Lease and CMK with “Just days after announcing…” So, here we go:

Just days after announcing an architect Ralph Johnson had been picked for the South Loop mixed use project known as River South (600 South Wells Street), the Anglo-Aussie combine has filed paperwork with the city to actually make it happen.

The project will be completed in five phases, with each phase corresponding to a sub-area of the space.

[...]

Here is the site plan for Lend Lease's development: Individual tower designs are currently at the diagram/massing stage.

Phase 1

First phase ready to start

River South Mega-Development Meets the Plan Commission




Quote:
The September meeting of the Chicago Plan Commission was held yesterday and at the end of the agenda was an unveiling of plans for the empty riverfront property south of River City to be developed by a joint venture of Chicago based CMK and Sydney, Australia based Lend Lease. Developer CMK Companies had purchased nearly all of the vacant property along the South Branch of the Chicago River between Harrison Street and Roosevelt Road last winter in three different transactions and proposed a mega-development for the site called River South. Chicago based architecture firm Perkins+Will was then hired to lead the site planning for the project to be constructed on both sides of the existing River City.

Chicago Skyline Set for Change as Plan Commission Approves Big Projects



Quote:
Previously called River South, the new Riverline mega-development will be located on 6.57 acres of empty riverfront property to the southeast of the intersection of Harrison and Wells Streets presently zoned DX-7. Proposed, is a new Planned Development with three sub-areas comprising five high-rise buildings arranged around an interior park and new public access to the riverfront. In total, the project now known as Riverline plans 2,699 residential units with an average ratio of .45 parking spaces and 16,500 square feet of ground floor retail space. The development team includes CMK Companies, which purchased most of the riverfront property between Harrison Street and Roosevelt Road last winter and then formed a partnership with Sydney, Australia based Lend Lease. Master planning and architectural design is being performed by Chicago based Perkins + Will.




The towers are designed to include five stories of townhouses lining the parking garage floors, presenting the edges facing the river and new park with occupied space over the entire height of each tower. The riverfront will feature a continuous boardwalk, built over a naturalistic shoreline edge, dog park and water taxi stop at the south end of the site where the alignment of Polk Street meets the river. A bridge over the river did exist at one time at Polk Street, and the currently empty right of way will be used as a pedestrian connection to the new riverwalk buildout.

The towers will be phased and are arraigned as building A (the tallest at 47 stories and 598 feet in height) on the north to Building E on the south. Building D, located at Polk and Wells will be constructed first as phase one, which will include all landscaping in the new park space as well. Building D will be built simultaneously with the first phase of the southern property also being developed by the same development team on the opposite side of River City. That property runs from 1000-1198 South Wells Street, between River City and Roosevelt Road. Building D will contain 452 residential units, 230 parking spaces, a small retail space and will stand in at 31 stories, 320'-11" in height.



Wells Street alongside the site will have the right of way widened by 5'-8" to allow for easier traffic flow as well as a better street condition for multimodal travel. $8.75 million will provided for affordable housing in phases with flexibility to place housing on-site or contribute to the trust fund as the complex is built out. A new traffic signal and left turn lanes would be added to the intersection of Wells and Polk Streets as well as modifications Wells Street intersections at Harrison and Congress. When fully built out, the property will generate $20 million in annual property taxes, plus additional revenue from permit fees and eventual real estate transfer taxes. Construction on phase one should begin shortly after ringing in the new year.

I always thought this side of Chicago deserved something to sort of 'link' with Willis Tower

Riverline Complex to Add 3,600 Residential Units to South Loop

Quote:
Consisting of five skyscrapers, three mid-rise buildings and a variety of townhouses, Riverline is designed to house around 5,000 people across a mix of condominium and rental housing. The tallest tower will stand at 182 metres and 51 floors on the northern section of the lot, and feature a series of inclined support columns soaring from the Chicago River. The buildings' height will gradually decrease as the multi-phase development unfolds to the south — plans also include two 127-metres towers, as well as 98- and 90-metre edifices.

I like the park setting as well. They made good use of the location near the river.

Theyre waiting on city funding for the underground infrastructure of the site, I believe. This land has no sewage, water, etc as far as I know so it will need a large amount of new infrastructure to be built. I think I heard that theyre planning on starting in late September or October.
