Seattle is definitely one of the future most impressive of the US, beautiful surroundings too

It needs a 300+. Hopefully that'll happen sooner than later

There's also 3 planned South Loop "megaprojects" planned. When built out this will become a mini Chicago version of Midtown/Lower Manhattan.
The South Loop will also have the added benefit of being loosely connected with the main Loop skyline . . . in fact from some viewpoints they appear to be a single skyline.

Calgary has such a prominent population of twin towers.

I always forget how big Houston is, it has a lot of potential when it fills in.

The projects in the South Loop, especially the 78 site, are some of the most exciting projects in Chicago in decades. 62 acres of land that have been barren for decades will eventually provide a true connection between the Loop and a huge part of the South Loop. Not to mention Chinatown. Plus the opening of a kilometer of the riverbank to recreational use.

And thats not even including the Riverline development to the north. Thats another ~700 meters of newly utilized river. These projects are such a unique opportunity for the city. I dont know if any other city in the country has such a massive area of land that can be developed right next to its cbd. The only other development in the country that rivals it in terms of potential impact is the Hudson Yards.

And then there are the thousands of housing units and millions of square feet of office space that are uc or have recently been built in the West Loop. The densification of the West Loop is probably the most significant aspect of this current construction wave so far in terms of improving Chicago's urbanity. More important than even the marquis 200m+ skyscrapers and supertall that have so far been built. Not to say that those towers havent greatly impacted the city.

Chicago today is a different city than it was just 20 years ago. So much land that was vaccant is now productive. Large parts of the city (mostly near the core but not exclusively) have been vastly improved. And the development just keeps going.

Barring a financial crisis or the city government shitting the bed, the next 10 years look to be a very exciting time for development in Chicago

I agree, the West Loop is defenitely the most significant improvement taking place in the city's future and urbanity. That neighborhood has the most potential of all to be a dense walkable 24-7 mixed use neighborhood with a really vibrant street presence. It's the only place in the city with lot line to lot line development and no podiums. Hopefully designs become a little more unique and creative as well as some substantial height increases for a more dynamic contrast. A world class shopping district to match it's night-life scene would help elevate the neighborhood's status as well.

The 78 is just a low density towers in a park environment with a suburban feel and the renders don't show a building even approaching the allowable 950' zoning. It will take 30-40 years to complete knowing Chicago's market and phasing approach so I'm not overly excited. River North needs to fill out to northwest with the sort of transformation Wells is undergoing and the core would feel massive.
