I prefer the original design for this location with this height...


Still exciting news!! Another Supertall hits home! If they're building this year, does it mean it's already approved?

I don't like the illustration but I'm not worried about this design at all. Chicago based Studio Gang does not mess around.

It's nice to finally have a proposal for a supertall in Chicago that is pretty much a guarantee. Magellan has great track record and they already have Wanda on board. This will be Chicago's next supertall.

It won't be built this year they still have paperwork and approval to go through.

Not a fan. This kind of design doesn't belong in Chicago. Odd proportions, poorly placed balconies, gimmicky design.

This won't have that much problems going through, the developer is mainly Wanda which is loaded so zoning shouldn't be an issue the only issue would be an alderman cutting it down.

My thoughts exactly. Gang Studio is top notch. The materials used in this will make it absolutely stunning, I have no doubt. She's an incredible architect.
Also, this is pretty much a done deal, and it will surpass the John Hancock tower!

I don't think it's easy to properly represent such structures on renderings, the real thing should look a lot better.

I don't like the design. It appears more fit for a Chinese city than for Chicago. Lets see what happens as the project progresses.

^ Same here. I can't help but think Jeanne Gang might be moving towards brutalism.

I agree that it would look amazing if they did it right. (Changed the design a little)

Call me crazy, but I think that the tower looks like One57 a little, especially One57 from the South. Both have three tubes, wavy stripes, non-symmetrical.

If they made any effort to make it have an elegant look, it would look more like One57 (unless they completely scrapped it, of course.)

Don't get me wrong; I'm totally okay with two towers coincidentally looking alike, but I like this fairly boxy design exactly as it is. Except that the big gap in the middle of the bottom makes it look a bit like the Tuntex Sky Tower in Taiwan from up close. And I'd like the tallest tube to be a little taller.

I don't want to say what the Chicago Spire looks like in those depictions.

oh god, such a cheap looking design; like stacked, empty chinese take-out boxes! It looks very amateurish.

I love it. Everyone is saying is not Chicago. Well it is time to change Chicago and go into the future. For the last few years almost everything has been like a box. Now let's be daring and go outside the box. I am happy.
