Hope something will be developed here eventually. Maybe a nice park and river side restaurant connected to a riverwalk allowing for some boat docking. And of course some high rises

Am I looking at that right? I'm just wondering if, in a future time when the Wells-Wentworth connector is finally complete and "The 78" and other nearby developments finally happen, those retail bays have the potential to be converted into active usage?

Is that big empty plot of land part of the 78 site?

The thread title is a bit misleading, it seems only one of the smaller high-rises is U/C at the moment, not the 5-600 footers. Could those begin soon?

That empty lot in Solar's shot is the south part of the Riverline development. Technically, it IS the Riverline, with the developed portion to the north (where the Reed is under construction) called "Southbank."

For clarity, both parcels were originally one project that was supposed to be developed by a Joint Venture between LendLease and CMK, but it was eventually split it in two, with LendLease developing the northern parcel as Southbank and CMK retaining control of the southern parcel under the original name (Riverline).

Last week I got to visit Chicago for the first time and was able to take some photos while I was being a tourist! This one was taken by me on my phone on 04/07/2022. I did the Architecture Cruise and this building was very prominent from the river.

Man, this thing is flying! Any word on when the LendLease portion may rise?
