Topping out at the seventh spot of Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown is the Cirrus condominium development in Lakeshore East. Reaching a height of 562 feet, the tower is part of a greater project that is building up the last plots of land near the water of the multi-decade masterplan for the neighborhood. Developers Lendlease and Magellan have worked with bKL Architecture, whose office is in the nearby Aqua Tower, on the three-tower plan.

Work is wrapping up at Vista Tower, a 101-story mixed-use building in Lake Shore East. The tower’s bold design is the work of Studio Gang Architects. The Chicago-based firm led by renowned architect Jeanne Gang also designed the planned O’Hare terminal and the nearby Aqua Tower.
