Studio Gang's 1,186-Foot Vista Tower Ready to Begin Construction

An announcement from Mayor Emanuel is expected today



Skyscraper junkies rejoice, it’s official: construction on Studio Gang’s 93-story supertall Vista Tower is moving forward. According to Crain’s, an announcement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel is expected today and will reveal plans to break ground as early as next month.

While Magellan Development and Chinese partner Dalian Wanda Group officially opened their slick sales center on April 4th to market the Vista’s 405 luxury residences, they have since been mum on the precise number of units sold. Obviously pre-sales have gone quite well, reaching the critical point where the development team is confident to officially green-light the tower’s construction, which is anticipated to take four years.

This breaks ground Wednesday. I'll change the status.

CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON VISTA TOWER, TO BE CHICAGO'S 3RD TALLEST BUILDING
Construction is scheduled to begin Wednesday on a tower that will be the third tallest building in Chicago.

Award-winning architect and Chicago native Jeanne Gang designed the Vista Tower. She designed the well-known Aqua Tower, which is located nearby.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel will break ground at the site near North Columbus and East Wacker drives in the Loop around noon, the city said.

Still going strong. I was on an architectural river cruise yesterday and the tour guide talked about it. I saw two cranes rising above the site, but couldn't tell how many stories above the ground they were. Sorry no pictures!
