Chicago’s highest-profile condo development under construction has officially reached its half-way point, according to a new report out from Curbed. Earlier in the month, constriction crews poured the concrete slab to the building’s 50th floor, which is just shy of 20 months since the official ground breaking ceremony.
Once finished Vista Tower will reach 1,198 feet high and rise 101 stories above ground. It’ll also be Chicago’s 3rd tallest tower when completed, although that ranking may not last should the super-tall 1,422-foot tower next to the Tribune Tower be built.
Vista Tower was designed by renowned Chicago architect Jeanne Gang in collaboration with bKL Architecture and Hirsch Bedner Associates. The building is slated to include luxury apartment residences, luxury condos, and also a high-end hotel. As of now, its grand opening is scheduled for sometime in 2020, and according to developers, roughly 40 percent of its residences are already sold.
