It’s been a long time in the making, but now we have a more approximate date for the Riverline mega-project’s groundbreaking. According to developers CMK Companies and Lendlease, workers are expected to break ground on the ambitious project in mid-September. The development, with a master plan designed by Perkins+Will, will span 14 acres and will deliver 3,600 new residences to the greater South Loop area when completed. The first phase will focus on two towers, 60 townhouses, and a 3.5 acre riverfront park. In addition to the news, the development team has also shared a few new renderings of how the project is expected to look a few years down the line. The project is certainly one of the biggest undertakings in recent years and may be one of the single largest projects for years to come.
