CMK Companies plans two new buildings near 14th and Wabash

CMK companies won city zoning approval for two planned residential buildings in the South Loop.

The developer went before the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals Friday seeking several variances to construct a 15-story building and a 10-story building near 14th Street and Wabash Avenue.

According to the zoning board, the 15-story building would have 199 units over retail at 45-59 East 14th Street. The 10-story building would have 62 units over retail at 1419 South Wabash Avenue.

The smaller building would use 36 parking spaces in the taller building’s lot as part of the zoning requests that were approved.

A CMK spokesperson declined comment on the projects.

CMK has a number of properties in the South Loop, and is developing the massive Riverline project on the east side of the South Branch of the Chicago River just north of Roosevelt.

The company had been in a joint venture with Lendlease to build a larger development along the river, but the two sides parted ways and divided up the planned project site, with Lendlease now developing an area on the north end called Southbank.
