Jeanne Gang tower???

This plan seems pretty advance, funding won't be an issue, as long as there are no road-blocks.

It would really be something to have a pair of supertalls guarding the mouth of the Chicago River, if this and the Spire get built.

Was this article written in another language and translated by a machine? And tallest building in Chicago at 350 meters? Did sears tower fall down?

this is great, but i hope it doesn't hurt the spire's ability to get funding, I know spire will be condo's, but Related did have interest in building some apts in the spire

Gang designed that?...

ndrwmls10 Jul 9, 2014 2:18 AM

A 6 story increase from May.

This seems more likely than a supertall Spire. Hope this news is true.

At 350m, that would make this the third tallest building in Chicago. And the John Hancock would be fifth!

dont' really like it, honestly feel i would rather have a box than this one, it just looks like 3 buildings stacked next to each other....maybe if the tallest section was in the middle it would seem more unified

munchymunch Jul 9, 2014 2:37 AM

Like the height, ok design

Chicago_Forever Jul 9, 2014 2:39 AM

Sorry but I'm just not feelin it. :runaway:

^^ If the corners had balconies - 1/2 with the walls receding behind you, and 1/2 with the corner looming over your head.

Confimed by a more mainstream source:

I'm even suprised how accurate my sketch was:
