Ok....that's something to go on.

First move-ins of the 452 unit project were in September last year. And they were 60% leased by this July. Seems to me they were well on their way to having themselves a stabilized asset 12-14 months after opening. To me it seems pretty typical.

While the OPO could only be a positive, I don't think it's some huge driver either. Southbank-Riverline stands on its own based on its location a handful of blocks from the CBD. I don't see its success as being somehow dependent on a re-energized SW Loop commercial center (again, it will only help though of course)...

The area's character definitely attracts residents who are not looking to live amongst tons of nightlife and 3am activity. More about convenience to the Loop, the Lakefront, cultural amenities - and yes, convenience to the nightlife without living on top of it.

One hundred percent agree. I live in the snoozefest of Dearborn Park and I love it. The Riverline being even farther removed from State Street and Michigan avenue would likely be even quieter.

I"m not so sure. Wells will be very busy when the punch it through to Chinatown, Harrison has so much traffic you can barely drive through there, and you can hear a constant hum of traffic from Ida B. Wells. Then you have the Metra trains sitting there running their engines...

I really like this. The wood and natural rock are nice choices I think.

I wonder if they are partially mirroring that on where we live in Long Island City (Queens). We really enjoy having access to it right in back of our place. Riverline could possibly be similar in the end minus the skyline view.

Looks like a nice sampling for what to expect. So far so good

Hello, neighbor

Definitely. There are old iron bridges, much like the gantries along the East River. The only things that are missing are hammocks, some willow trees, and a futuristic library that seemingly will never open to the public.

No doubt a lot of these public spaces are influenced by each other. I have a friend that works for the Detroit parks department. Her team took a trip over to New York City to visit parks, including Governor's Island, as they plan to further develop Belle Isle. And I am sure that Governor's Island has partially influenced what Rham and his team tried to do on Northerly Island.

It makes sense. Copy successful projects. The pictures above reminded me a little of Gantry. It's so nice when you live right there too. I hope Riverline has a few restaurants or something too. I just can't imagine 3000 units with almost nothing right there.

P.S. you live in LIC? TFC? Lol would be funny if we are neighbors in the same building without even knowing it.

Yep! Just moved here a couple months ago, following my wife around the country for her job. I'm over by Queens Plaza, so I doubt we are in the same building. PM me if you would like to grab a drink sometime. I could use a friend or two in the area and have been itching to try out some of the breweries in the area.

^ Funny. We are over next to the river. I'll have to let you know - next few months are hectic with work and pulling off a wedding.

I'm digging the park and riverwalk, as I knew I would. Hoerr Schaudt did a really nice job here.
