Clean, soaring lines! Many, if not most of the best skyscrapers are in Chicago. I like this design very much.

Chicago allows a building the space to breath.

The owners/developers of Central Station have started marketing the land for Tower 3 & 4 to interested buyers. The new owner could still build as high as the previous zoning allowed but it's unclear whether they'd keep the same design (at least for Tower 3).

I'd doubt they'd keep the designs. But I hope they still build as tall as the first towers. These towers really added some nice height to the skyline. Hopefully it keeps growing.

How high tower 3 was supposed to be? I am a bit confused with numbers on top.

I agree.
I really like Tower 1-2 and the way they have extended Chicago's skyline to the south.

Tower 3 would have been the second tallest...so 790ft.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Chicago has a pretty good amount of new developments going on. This my second favorite sorry I like Lakeshore East a little more.
