I like munchymunch's model the best for chicago, however the originally model would be a great design for dubai or the gold coast.

Developer's Site Hints at a Rafael Vinoly Designed Tower for the South Loop

Quote:
On a subsection of developer Crescent Heights' website, an image has appeared on a page labeled Michigan & Roosevelt, promoting an upcoming development for what is currently a vacant lot. Although the rendering, which only shows the lower floors of a new tower, could just merely be a placeholder design for the purposes of the webpage, the image could also very well be a sneak peek of the proposal said to be designed by well known architect Rafael Vinoly. If the rumors turn out to be true, this would be the first major high-rise project for Vinoly's firm to be located in Chicago.



Crescent Heights currently lists the proposed tower as 1255 South Indiana Avenue, and is rumored to rise 70 floors. According to the high-rise watchers on the SkyscraperPage forums, the tower could rise up to 835 feet to the top of the parapet and 862 feet to the top of a decorative roof structure. If the building does indeed climb to that final height figure, it would be the tallest all-residential building in Chicago, provided nothing more than simple ground floor retail space is also included in the building. At 862 feet, 1255 South Indiana would also steal the title of tallest all-residential building from the already approved 451 East Grand project in Streeterville by Related Midwest and architecture firm Robert A.M. Stern which is expected to top out around 850 feet.

The Crescent Heights webpage also lists 30,000 square feet of retail and 1,900 units, although it would be highly unlikely for these figures to be for only one tower. A second building is expected to be constructed at the southeast corner of Michigan and Roosevelt and as such, the figures could be inclusive of both towers as well as any nearby land holdings which could be considered as part of a phased project.

Apparently its going to be about 1900 units. Looks almost like twin Sears Towers, only smaller. Perhaps Viñoly's best design yet, and it restores my faith in him that was lost by 432 Park.

76 floors. This makes 3 buildings of 250m+ that are likely to start construction by 2016.

The name of this thread needs to be changed to reflect the address and the fact that this isn't 'The Chicago'.

113 East Roosevelt is what it's going by at the moment.

CHICAGO | 113 East Roosevelt | 253m | 829ft | 76 fl | Pro

Starting a new thread for this project because the current iteration is completely different from what is shown on the first page of the last thread.

Quote:
A new tower proposal unveiled last night to a packed audience could become one of the tallest buildings in Chicago, and the tallest for the South Loop neighborhood. Developer Crescent Heights and architect Rafael Viñoly revealed a 76-story tower plan for 113 E. Roosevelt Road that might not just be one building, but possibly twin skyscrapers for the south end of Grant Park. The project would be Crescent Heights' first new construction project for Chicago, and the aim would be to "anchor the south end of Grant Park." The almost modular looking project would be built in phases and could ultimately produce nearly 800 new apartments for the area. Because of the sheer scale of the development, the plan would include apartments of varying sizes, floor plans and prices. According to Viñoly, the plan would present a number of options for folks in different price ranges and needs, stating that the project is "not just an architectural idea, but an urban design idea."
