Ryan Ori, Contact Reporter for the Chicago Tribune, released an article in response to the Riverline development split into two separately controlled projects. CMK Companies will retain control of the south parcel, with Lendlease continuing work on the 7-acre north parcel. The south parcel, situated between Polk Street and Roosevelt Road along the east bank of the Chicago River, will move forward with the Riverline name and master-plan designed by Perkins+Will.
Colin Khinke, Founder and President of CMK Companies, added, “There’s a longstanding relationship, and a lot of respect. Lendlease has built a tremendous amount of buildings for us, and we will certainly continue to utilize them in the future.”
“We’re really creating such a unique community that it really benefits both parties and the entire area,” Kihnke said. “All the large-scale development really solidifies us as the core of everything that’s happening around us.”
