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.
Permits have been filed for a three-story residential building at 1109 N Paulina Street in the East Village, on the edge of Wicker Park. The interior lot is located along N Paulina Street between W Division Street and W Haddon Avenue. The nearest public transportation is the 70 CTA bus accessed at the Division and Paulina stop at the end of the block. The Division CTA L station serviced by the Blue Line is the nearest stop, a four-minute walk away. The site is also within a five-minute walk of N Milwaukee Avenue and N Ashland Avenue, two busy commercial and retail corridors. Eleven Paulina Development, LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications, reporting the development cost as $852,700.
New renderings by Antunovich Associates reveal a possible development at 1050 W Van Buren Street in the West Loop. Located on a corner lot at the intersection of W Van Buren Street and W Gladys Avenue, the project will consist of a 21-story mixed-use tower. The nearest public transportation is the 126 CTA bus at the corner of W Van Buren Street and N Aberdeen Street. The nearest CTA L station is the Racine stop, serviced by the Blue Line, a five-minute walk from the site. Tandem Partners, LLC is listed as the developer of the proposal.
YIMBY has recent construction photos of Onni Group‘s third and final tower, a 41-story mixed-use building in the Old Town Park development, a large site just east of Near North Side‘s Seward Park. Located at 1140 N Wells Street, the three-tower complex is developed by the Vancouver-based real estate company, which has built a series of other apartment buildings in the Near North Side area. Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is responsible for designing all three phases. Phase One consists of a 32-story residential high rise northeast of the third tower, while Phase Two is a 39-story mixed-use tower adjacent to the east of it.
