Developer Reports Over One Quarter of Units in Vista Tower Now Under Contract


Quote:
No less than 110 of the Vista’s 406 high-end condominiums have found buyers


Quote:
The developer behind Chicago’s planned 95-story Vista Tower recently confirmed that over a quarter of the building’s ultra-luxury units have found buyers, reports the Chicago Tribune. According to Magellan Development’s National Marketing Director Jim Losik, no less than 110 of the Vista’s 406 condominiums are now under contract. The recent news comes on the back of last month’s report by a Hong Kong-based new outlet that roughly $200 million worth of real estate in the Studio Gang-designed supertall sold since March.

While the latest figure includes an undisclosed number of the Vista’s full-floor "Sky Residences" which occupy floors 71 through 91 and start at $9 million, there’s been no official word if the tower’s $17.4 million two-level penthouse has secured a purchaser. The Windy City continues to enjoy a record level of foreign investment and the Vista project has acted as nothing short of a lightning rod for overseas buyers — drawing clients from places such as mainland China and Hong Kong.

In addition to world-class residential amenities, a 191-key Wanda-branded luxury hotel with occupy the tower’s lowest 12 floors. Dalian Wanda Group, China’s largest real estate developer, has partnered with Chicago-based Magellan Development on the estimated $1 billion project. Though a four-year construction timeline was previously quoted, the Tribune article puts the expected delivery date of the 1,186-foot-tall Lakeshore East skyscraper at late 2019. The developer hopes to begin construction either this month or next.

Construction crews ready site for Chicago's next supertall skyscraper

Workers are busy clearing a path for Vista Tower, Chicago’s first new supertall tower in over a decade
BY JAY KOZIARZ AUG 18, 2016, 12:13P

Quote:
Adhering more or less to the construction timeline presented earlier this summer to neighbors, workers were busy today preparing the future site of the 1,186-foot-tall Vista Tower in Chicago’s Lakeshore East. The whir of heavy machinery echoed off nearby buildings as crews cleared the somewhat soggy earth of long-buried wooden beams and carried out crucial sewer work on N. Field Boulevard — the roadway the upcoming 93-story skyscraper will eventually straddle between two great trunks.

Once the site is prepared, caissons can be drilled and construction will officially begin in earnest. The foundation process is expected to kick-off later this month and continue through April of 2017. Penned by Studio Gang with bKL Architecture serving as architect of record, Vista Tower will contain 406 luxury condos, 192 hotel rooms, and parking for 345 vehicles when it opens in 2020 and takes its place as Chicago’s third tallest building.

The design is beautiful. Will they use different shades of glass like the renders suggest?

Chicago's Future Third Tallest Building Breaks Ground


Quote:
The birthplace of the skyscraper is naturally no stranger to heights. Chicago's Willis Tower was the world's tallest building for nearly 25 years, and though the recession hit the housing market of America's third largest city hard, an economic rebound is afoot. The restoration in Chicago's fortunes has produced one of the most anticipated residential developments in American history. Set to become the city's third tallest building upon completion in 2020, Vista Tower is about to make a massive impact in the hearts and minds of Chicagoans.

YEAH FINALLY Chicago is starting to catching up with N.Y. and L.A. Love Chicago. Great Memories and Great Relatives in this Skyscrapercity.
Me personal Thinks that Chicago will beat New York one day to get Americas first Megatall. The spirit in Chicago is more that they want to have the tallest while I get the feeling that in New York is no one is daring to go over 1WTC for a decade or two.

Catching up with L.A.? What? Chicago could build nothing for a century and still dwarf L.A. in terms of skyscrapers.

But yes, great to see a near 1,200 footer about to rise in this amazing city

Jay...What I ment with catching up was the Construction phases of Supertall skyscrapers. I know that N.Y and Chicago is in their own League of their own in the Americas. But Yeah Great to see this incredible city catching up with the others in the terms of construction. I would love to see Chicago get their own building boom as New York has now.
