Not sure if the 1,140 figure is correct, the 1,186 above ground seems more accurate.

I know it's splitting hairs but I really hope it's the second highest roof in the city and visibly taller than AON.

The new renderings look amazing though

I'm not sure about the height either. But Studio Gang features an article from Chicago Tribune from April 2015, saying that the tower would be the fifth or third tallest depending on measurement. From main entrance (Lower Wacker Drive) it would be 1,144 ft high, from Upper Wacker Drive 'only' 1,099 ft.
Other news sources from today (Crain's Chicago Business and Designboom) say something vague like 'nearly 1,200 ft'.


EDIT: Chicago Tribune form November 2015 says 1,186 ft

Also more renderings and info on the official website of the tower: http://www.vistatowerchicago.com/ (but no info about the height)

Curbed Chicago has pictures of the sale center:

Unless they recently changed it, but the article is probably just mistaken and estimating the old height.

If 1186' it will actually be the second highest roof in Chicago, and the first building to pass the 90th floor setbacks of Sears tower

This image was posted by ChicagoFlorida on February 20th. There must have been some movement since then!

Pixar has taken a different approach for Cars 3 it seems.

Studio Gang's 1,186-Foot Vista Tower Ready to Begin Construction

An announcement from Mayor Emanuel is expected today

Quote:
Skyscraper junkies rejoice, it’s official: construction on Studio Gang’s 93-story supertall Vista Tower is moving forward. According to Crain’s, an announcement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel is expected today and will reveal plans to break ground as early as next month.

While Magellan Development and Chinese partner Dalian Wanda Group officially opened their slick sales center on April 4th to market the Vista’s 405 luxury residences, they have since been mum on the precise number of units sold. Obviously pre-sales have gone quite well, reaching the critical point where the development team is confident to officially green-light the tower’s construction, which is anticipated to take four years.

Figured it was worth pulling a couple. I hadn't seen this one before...



And we've seen this render in low-res, but it's worth posting the larger version. This is the vantage point that really sold me on this tower after I'd initially been a little skeptical about the design...

With that last render I see that it won't be angled, it will just have tons of little setbacks.
The ceiling to floor height actually looks very thin.
