I am not a fan of their work. It always seems to be the cheapest stuff in their buildings.
I am also not a fan of this building.

Being that they are one of the LEAST EXPENSIVE they also attract many investors or buyers who may have been pushing the envelope with their finances.
1620 S. Michigan currently has 11 units on the market that are SHORT SALES
1720 S. Michigan currently has 10 units on the market that are SHORT SALES
I suspect some more short sales, and possibly a couple bank owned may come on line in these two buildings soon.
630 N. Franklin does NOT currently have any short sales or foreclosures on the market, but did have some in the past. I believe this building was spared because of Location, Location, Location!
Next building to watch out for? 235 W. Van Buren - I believe in 8 months or so we will start seeing a handful of short sales come online. Not too many since those who couldn't afford it, simply did not close. However, those who do need to relocate or simply do not want to own there anymore will need to sell and will probably have to short their units.

Owners report that it is extremely difficult to get CMK to honor their warranties because, as one owner put it "Collin wont return my calls".
Some of their projects are architecturally progressive, adding new life to the Chicago skyline. Until they improve their construction methods and client services, I would stay far away from one of their developments.
