I like the size of this one over those previous proposals. I think this design gives the southern end of the skyline a bit more mass. And there's always the opportunity to add some slender towers in the future to balance it out.

Wasn't there a master plan, at least before the crash of 2008, to build four more slender condo towers - two on that parcel to join the existing One Museum Park and One Museum Park West? I guess the planning at Central Station is a little more flexible than at Lake Shore East.

I hope this proposal fails and they build the two slender towers instead.
I'd expect a redesign if this development moves forward soon. The trend now is for condo towers with far fewer units targeting wealthy buyers with cash, not those who require a mortgage.

It looks about 10m shorter than One Museum Park which is 726ft/221m. So I think it'll be around 210m. It should crack 200m but not by much.

That'd mean floor heights of probably a bit under 3m (given the need for taller mechanical floors). That seems unlikely for a new residential property of this scale and type in the U.S.

Yeah, this is effectively replacing the once-planned 3 and 4 Museum Park.

this could be split up into 5 slender towers.

On Wednesday we posted about some activity in the form of surveyors at the high-profile vacant lot at the southeast corner of Roosevelt and Michigan.


Massing Model for Building
@ SE Corner of
Michigan & Roosevelt?
Well yesterday we received a tip from a reader that a poster on skyscrapperpage.com had some more rumors/information on this corner:
Hello all, First time poster on SkyscraperPage. I recently moved to Chicago and also from skyscrapercity to skyscraperpage. I am a Landscape Architect for a great landscaping company in Chicago.
I scanned back through the last 50 pages of the forum and see a lot of great projects in the pipeline! I didn't see anything about a project being bid in our commercial estimating department right now (but I could easily have overlooked). It's a 50+ story scraper just off Grant Park. It has a series of step backs with green roofs. I'll try to get more info about the exact location and who the architects are if this project has not already been reported in here.
I look forward to contributing photos and whatever comes across my path to the forum. Cheers!
As the thread goes on, it becomes clear that the parcel of land the reader is talking about is none-other than the the lot at Michigan and Roosevelt:
So the project is called Grant Park Tower III. It is on the south side of the park. Architect is Rafael Vinoly. I counted over 70 floors - parapet height is 830'. I did a google search and it appears that it is a project back from the dead with an overhaul on the design. Many step backs with cool pocket green roofs.

*edit

The OLD design is too massive to work well at this location in my opinion. A more slender tower or the same tower but rotated 90 degrees would have worked much better.

The design is very 80's arcade. A little over the top, very grimy in a bladerunner sense.

So this is the older design that has apparently been tweaked?

I thought this was the old one that has been scrapped:

There will be a new designed that will look kind of like the one in the article I posted.

If it's Vinoly, it'll be a much plainer tower than the previous versions. In this case, that's a good thing.

The tetris looking building has apparently been scrapped, the one that could be built would be similar to the curvy wall tower which looks really nice!

At least that's my take of it.

I love the newer one... the old one was just too thick and unwieldy. I like the shape of this, and it would make for a really nice addition to an already great skyline in the Windy City.

The shape of the new tower is much more suitable for Chicago. It's clearly a variation on the structure of the Willis Tower.
