Construction details have just been released for what’s expected to someday become the third tallest mixed-use tower in Chicago. The new Vista Tower is already pre-selling condos in the Lakeshore East neighborhood. At 93-stories, the tower will also include another five-stories below ground.
Vista Tower will someday offer more than 400 luxury condominium homes, nearly 350 parking spaces, a five-star hotel on the lower 12 floors, plus restaurants, ballrooms and meeting rooms. Construction begins on the foundation for the structure in early August with a four-year detailed plan for completion. While pedestrian and vehicular traffic will see some disruptions during that period, both are expected to be improved upon in the future.
Earlier this summer Magellan Development reported that more than 25-percent of the condo units within Vista Tower were already under contract. The building offers a two-level penthouse and a number of spacious “Sky Residences” on the upper levels.
The towering structure is a massive project even by Chicago standards, with some comparing it to the building of Trump International Hotel & Tower more than a decade ago, the last most relative project of its kind in the city.
