Pre-sale requirements could very much be an issue.
How much $/SF are the Vista units selling for?

Thanks for the correction!

158 units is crazy low for a tower of this height.

Some baseless conjecture: Assuming its ultra luxury (thus, high ceilings), at 12 ft/floor and subtracting 150 feet for lobby/crown/mechanical, it will roughly be 100 floors in height. That works out to under 4 units per floor if you include the hotel count with the condo units. The hotel portion will undoubtedly be denser, which would lower the condo portion to something like 2 units per floor.

This is of course imprecise since we don't know a lot of information, including things such as penthouse unit ceiling heights, the potential for multi-floor units, etc.

Four units per floor isn't unreasonable for a tower like this with a small footprint. The core takes the center and the four units each get a corner. Larger units get half a floor each.

Wasn't the 158 condo units number from the conversion of the Tribune Tower itself? Not the number of units in the supertall new construction?

^ The Trib tower itself would include 165 residential units (condos). The supertall addition would include retail, 158 condo units and 220 hotel rooms. It's all on the first page of this thread. Also, in the article they also said these numbers could change.

How much does the highest end New construction condos sell for? I'm talking about the Wanda Vista and the Stern tower for example?

I usually say around $800 per square foot when folks on my tours ask.

This report claims Vista Tower units range in price per square foot from $716 to $1,590.

Just thinking...

This is what was put together as a vision when Thompson Center redevelopment conversation was murmuring last year.


https://chicago.curbed.com/2017/1/19...-redevelopment

Smith+Gill (1,700')

Could we see a 300' shorter version here?

I doubt it, that design bears absolutely no relation to the Tribune Tower. Why would he put a smaller version of that design on a totally different site?

Despite his overall turn toward the futuristic, Adrian Smith still knows how to respect his neighbors. Trump Tower borrowed the curtain wall from IBM, the wedding-cake massing from Wrigley, and the setback heights from both buildings. Bonus, he borrowed the parking ramp from JHC.

A little birdie told me...

...tweet, tweet...

MONDAY, APRIL 16th

SHERATON HOTEL

TIME ?? (I'm guessing 6ish)


It's not 100% confirmed, but I feel comfortable.

I do believe past articles stated they wanted to be before the plan commission sometime this summer.
