CMK's Land Grab Next to the Chicago River Progresses

CMK also is building a 307-unit apartment tower at 1333 S. Wabash. Yet the developer's two Wabash projects, while in a more established neighborhood, aren't on the Chicago River, an amenity it will almost certainly embrace in its plans for its newly acquired properties.

CMK, whose recent projects include a 714-unit condominium tower at 245 W. Van Buren St., has emerged as the boldest buyer of South Loop land since the crash. In December it paid $7.8 million for a 1.8-acre property just south of River City.

CMK pays $33 million for riverside land in South Loop

The supply of new condos, meanwhile, remains low even as demand grows. Last year, CMK was the first developer to break ground on a condo high-rise in seven years when it began building a 144-unit project at 1345 S. Wabash Ave. in the South Loop.

CMK also is building a 307-unit apartment tower at 1333 S. Wabash. Yet the developer's two Wabash projects, while in a more established neighborhood, aren't on the Chicago River, an amenity it will almost certainly embrace in its plans for its newly acquired properties.
