I’ll update this thread very regularly. This tower is definitely one to be excited about!


Thanks for these threads @Oatmeal ! be our chicago correspondant!
I had no idea there were as many projects! I only knew about wanda vista!


No problem @robertitoam, I’d be glad to! There are a ton more huge projects under construction in Chicago that aren’t on here. When I have time, I’ll go through and add as many as I can!


Holy crap this one is awesome.



I also love that there’s a much taller phase 2!


@the726 That is just an idea for now. I haven’t seen anything about it being official, but I sure hope it’s official! I’ll look around and see what I can find.

In the meantime, here’s another update! Taken yesterday (March 1st):

Getting pretty tall. I think it will look really good next to the taller towers next to it.

Have a good day! :slight_smile:

This is so much taller in person. This image captures that in my opinion. The cool thing is that it’s still far from topping out! :smiley:
