Structural work has now passed the ninth floor for the 41-story residential tower known as The Reed, located directly north of River City Apartments in South Loop.

With Lendlease as the developer, this scheme includes the completed development “The Cooper” adjacently west, alongside a host of new public park spaces. Future plans include a pair of towers roughly the same height as The Reed, connected by a podium at their base.

Each of the condominium units will come will come with nine-foot ceiling spans, metal finishes, wood plank flooring, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Kitchens will come with 3/4″ quartz countertops, Hansgrohe faucets, flat-panel European cabinetry, and Bosch and Whirlpool appliances.
