The Loop‘s newest skyscraper, 300 N Michigan Avenue, is now complete. The 47-story mixed-use tower developed by Sterling Bay and Magellan Development Group features a retail base, a 280-key citizenM hotel on the lower levels, and 289 rental apartment units dubbed “Millie on Michigan.”

Now open to residents is the 47-story condominium skyscraper known as Cirrus, situated just west of the lakefront in Chicago’s Lakeshore East. This 562-foot-tall tower at 211 N Harbor Drive was developed by Lendlease and Magellan Development Group, offering 350 condominiums connected to 50,000 square feet of amenity space. Alongside its 37-story apartment buildings sibling dubbed Cascade and a 0.8-acre-Cascade Park. The two towers and the park occupy the parcels J, K, and L of the larger Lakeshore East masterplan.
Final glass pieces are being installed for 300 N Michigan Avenue, a 47-story mixed-use skyscraper in The Loop. Co-developers Sterling Bay and Magellan have planned for a retail base, a 280-key citizenM hotel on the lower levels, and 289 rental apartment units on the upper floors.
Wrapping up 2021’s year-end countdown is the 101-story St. Regis Chicago, anchored prominently at 375 E Wacker Drive along the Chicago River. Formerly known as Vista Tower and Wanda Vista Tower, this glassy Lakeshore East goliath has been planned by Magellan Development Group and will be managed under St. Regis Hotel and Resorts (subsidiary of Mariott). The height of the tower has been reported as several different figures, including 1,196 and 1,198 feet, though planning documents appear to indicate 1,191 feet as the most precise measurement from the Riverwalk to the architectural pinnacle.
Since YIMBY’s September update, glass has steadily enclosed most of the remaining floors at 300 N Michigan Avenue, a 47-story skyscraper that recently topped out in the northeast corner of The Loop. Developers Magellan Development Group and Sterling Bay have planned a mix of retail in the base, a 280-key CitizenM hotel on the sixth through 15th floors, and residential apartments on the 17th through 45th floors.
