Guys, no one said the new design is shorter! For all we know it is taller! They haven't released any info to tell us. This is just a low quality render of the new design, nothing that tells us the height. The new design has less space then the avant garde old design, so the new design could be taller.

Wow. Pretty awesome. From the designs there I like.......

Lower Middle, Upper Right, Lower Left, Upper Middle, Lower Right, Upper Left.


It looks like all those are envisioned to be in the 800'ish range.

All of those designs are way better than the outcome of the concept!

Next week, I'm going to Chicago. I will take my time to visit this site, to see if there's activity. I'm only staying there for a couple of days because I have to go to Kansas City for the All-Star Game, just after the Chicago Fire-LA Galaxy game.

Expect updates from my behalf!

I don't like it. Such a drag from the initial design.

I was hoping it would surpass the tower next to it.

Agreed.

I was hoping the housing market would come back in Chicago to the point that Related could build it out per Waterview's original design, if a bit shorter. But rentals rule right now and that means bland, value-engineered boxes.

What a pity.


Better tear down this ugly stub and wait for better times.

Wow, this thing is really limping home to completion. A sign of the times, I suspect.

Nice update, thank you!


Btw, what was on that site before they began constructing the Waterview tower?

Hopefully not some historical building?!
