The tower in the photo is being re-clad and will remain standing. You can see the current tower in the render. Beside it will rise a new tower with a brand new podium.

Agree. The original design was far nicer. Even the old Four Seasons is nicer than this new generic tower. What a snooze!

Some new renderings courtesy of insertnamehere. Tower to the right in the first image is the new tower. Tower to the left is the original Yorkville hotel being retrofitted. In the second image, the smaller tower is the boutique residences for Yorkville Plaza.




August 5th by Red Mars. Work continues...

I think the work that is being done to the base of the former Four Seasons Hotel is similar to what was done to the base of the former Block 82 Tower in Fort Worth, Texas, United States when that former office building was being converted into residential use itself. (New square/rectangular base being constructed around original sloped base).
