For some reason I'd assume real site work had already commenced for the new tower.

As much hate (hate might be a touch strong....disappointment?) the new design has gotten, I've got to say I think it's pretty solid. I could be wrong, but my gut tells me the older design (perhaps for all of the yet to be built towers) was always just a placeholder - and I think that contributed to the deflated feelings relative to expectations. I don't think the columns were ever really going to be built like that .

Also glad LendLease is thus far sticking with Perkins & Will with design work.

I'm as curious as ever what CMK is waiting for with (the actual) Riverline development (this one is Southbank/since the developers split up and split it up)?

CMK has a lot of dirt. The area south of River City, the 1st District Police Station parking lots, the salt shed at 18th & Clark, the parking lot at 14th & Wabash.

Wouldn't surprise me for them to do 14th & Wabash next and wait until The 78 has some things happening and makes the River City South site really ripe.

Why is this in the U/C section? Looks like they barely just got equipment on site for solid testing.

If you notice the thread title and the previous posts, you will see that there has been one tower built of a possible eight. However, it appears the project has been renamed and split up somewhat. Perhaps someone can update the title if that is the case.

A caisson rig is being assembled and several liners have been delivered.

^ Nice. Sounds like a 2nd May highrise start. (correction - looks like K3, if that's what it's really called? - actually started in late Apri)

True enough. 18th and Clark though? Did not realize they own that parcel. That's interesting......do they own all the way up to 16th I wonder? I'm very curious what they are thinking for this....could be multiple highrises I presume, adjacent to the 78

That is quite the narrow lot(s). I wonder if they could even build all that tall there, or if they'd simply settle for midrises. I suppose it really depends on what zoning density they get, assuming it hasn't been changed from its current industrial/city use.

Yeah I'm also interested, is this public information? I know Streets and San is moving across the river eventually, but doesn't there need to be some kind of open solicitation for the land? They can't just cut a backroom deal with CMK.

The same would apply for the CPD parking lots...

So are they drilling caissons for the tower itself or "vertical access shafts" for the underground tunnel beneath the site?

I've been wondering if actual foundation work had even gotten underway on this one, as there was mention of some other work being done first on the site. Nice update, and great to see.

There's new activity at the site over the past week or so, beyond the construction of the Reed.

There's a small notch of land that was prepped just north of The Cooper on Wells – the footprint doesn't look large enough to be the next rental building though.

Also, just an hour or so ago, I saw a crew putting in a new sidewalk path straight north of the circular path midway through the park.

Nothing more than a conceptual design exercise, IIRC.

Correct. It was Perkins+Will's shot at taking timber to new heights. It was a marketing exercise at the least, and I think some of us were hoping the developer would latch onto the idea if the first phases of Riverline were successful.
