YIMBY recently stopped by the site of Tribune East Tower, the newly approved supertall that will become Chicago’s second tallest building. Tribune East is part of the Tribune Tower redevelopment project, which includes the conversion of the original Tribune Tower into 162 condominium units. Developers CIM Group and Golub & Company are leading the development of the $700 million structure that will replace a surface parking lot originally used by Chicago Tribune employees.
YIMBY has updated pictures for the new condominiums being integrated into the former Chicago Tribune headquarters at 435 N Michigan Avenue on Magnificent Mile. The iconic 36-story, 470-foot-tall tower was completed in 1925 after its architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood won the 260-entry competition to design as beautiful an office building as possible, hosted by the Tribune paper itself.
