There will still be two towers that front Columbus. I believe that the Gang tower is the northern most of the two.

Whoever bought the units facing northeast at Regatta are the lucky owners. Imagine having the view of Lake Michigan intersecting with the Chicago River, watching firework shooting up above Navy Pier, and a fantastic view of two 2,000 ft tall structures (if happened).

I envy them.

something i noticed on emporis about the Tides is that it is 498 ft tall with 51 floors compared to the 450 ft, 48 floor shoreham. We may be disapointed with a more or less repeat design, but it is slightly taller!

Yeah, the density is fantastic... I just wish it wasn't washed out. The damn windows on the Hancock were filthy

My first attempt from my Sidekick II. So sorry that pix is at low resolution.

Anyway, this is a current top portion of 340OTP. I think it is the 18th floor they are working on, based from the window of 21st floor of a prominent building.

I will try to capture any picture in the morning where the construction activity tends to be exciting than late afternoon. Hope you like it, I think.

^ When I counted the floors on 340owners.com, I counted 23/24 floors and framing for the next floor.

As of Feb 1st. Courtesy of 340owners.com:

along with the quality development going on there (and its admirable and generous use of public space), is it safe to say that Lakeshore East is unquestionably the most prime and dramatic piece of developable land anywhere in urban America?

river, lake, downtown, and being in a city like Chicago....I personally can't think of any piece of real estate subject to development that can compare.

^Yeah and w/ 3 under constructiuon, 1 more approved, and 10 more building between nearly 300 ft and 700ft ( I think the gang tower is around 700?????) it is going to be one of the densest neighborhoods in the city......the whole "east" side from streeterville to lakeshoreeast is going to really help transform downtown to more and more of a bustling reidential area.....I can't wait

The last email that I got from a contact of mine is that the Gang Tower tops out at 942'-6" CCD. Now, I don't know if that measurement comes from the park level or Columbus Drive. If the measurement is taken from park level subtract about 50'. Either way, it's tall.

WOW. That's crazy. I'm even more excited about this. 900, 950 - who cares? It's going to be awesome either way. Thank you again

Holy shit that is tall. Thanks Vic! I'm begining to grow impatient for the rendering. I don't know about you guys, but has itn't been awhile since they said it should be released in the next couple of weeks? Or is it sometime this month? I'm going crazy and can't wait any longer
