Exterior work continues around the hotel portion of the partially-complete St. Regis Chicago (formerly Vista Tower), a 101-story mixed-use skyscraper in Lakeshore East. Rising 1,191 feet at 375 E Wacker Drive, this supertall tower now ranks as Chicago’s third tallest building. Developed by Magellan Group, the tower will house a 191-key hotel on the first 11 floors, while the remaining floors will comprise of 393 condominiums. St. Regis Hotel and Resorts, a subsidiary of Marriott International, manages both the hotel and residential portion.
YIMBY has north- and east-facing photos from the 41st floor of Wolf Point East, a 679-foot-tall, 60-story residential building in River North. The photos show the scope and magnitude of several projects under construction around downtown.
YIMBY has updated construction photos for the nearly complete 101-story Vista Tower, designed by Chicago-based Jeanne Gang and developed by Magellan Group. The 1.9 million-square-foot tower is now Chicago’s third tallest building at 1,191 feet, outpacing even the nearby Aon Center that previously stood unrivaled in the Lakeshore East neighborhood. The mixed-use building’s high profile also stems from the unique frustum-stack composition that forms its massing, adding to the collection of bold designs that the city knows well.
