The design for the industrial-inspired building is by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture. The exterior glass facade will be lined with rows of balconies as well as both horizontal and vertical metal beams to add texture. This grid will extend up past the roofline and form part of the amenity penthouse.

  1. Thank you for the photos – even with the ( very cool ) models I was having trouble placing this one.

  2. Wow, Chicago is going to look even more massive with the new developments taking place in the south side. (The 78 & One Central). My question is, what are those two connected Supertall Skyscrapers called in the 78 model? I’ve never seen them, are those legit? I would like to know more!!

    • Those two connected towers are part of the One Central, I believe. The angle just makes it look like One Central and the 78 are connected.

    • Wait, I’m sorry. I see which ones you’re talking about. Under the blue one. My mistake. Yeah I wonder too…

      • Oh yes I see what you’re talking about – those were originally placeholders way back when I built this first version of The 78. I’ll actually be replacing the whole masterplan very soon with the latest plans that came with the DPI announcement

  3. This building is nicely proportioned, hopefully they use high quality glass.

    @Jack Crawford, your models are always great for understanding the impact of projects from alternate perspectives that renders never provide and illustrating the scope of transformation. Thanks for all your hard work.
