Just one question I have wondered now for a while? The tallest of the three Towers will be 1186 feet high / 362 meters, but the other two how tall will them be. Is it maybe 100 meters in height difference. Sorry for meters but I understand the metric system better then the imperial system. Thanks

The SkyscraperPage Skyscraper Diagram for Chicago shows a 90 metre height differential between the Vista Towers.

Just FYI there are not three towers, it is just one tower.

Yes, you're absolutely right. It's just one tower designed to look like three towers stuck together. What I should have specified in my earlier post is that the three levels are differentiated by 90 metres each.

Any way you slice it this is a great addition to the Chicago skyline.

I can't believe they actually are building this. It is long overdue for Chicago to wake up and start catching up

Don't know if has been said already, but this design crearly takes Brancusi's Endless Column as a reference. I find it kind of suggestive.

Those images of caisson drilling are strongly reminiscent of the old Chicago Spire images.

This building will have a better fate.

I like very much the design of this tower, but wouldn't be much better with a spire? Sorry if this was spoken before, but in my opinion, a good spire could add very much to the original design.

Maybe the scales are way off, but in that model it looks way taller than AQUA.

It's probably the angle, and it is way taller than AQUA in any case, just not by quite that much.

Looks okay to me, Aqua even looks heigher than the upper setback, while it will be the same height I believe.

Every time I see that model I wonder if they'll use different shades of blue glass for different floors, or maybe that's just the model showing the different reflections of the very same glass just reflecting the sunlight differently from the concave and convex aspects of the building.
