That's exciting, they could have rearranged units and added more without increasing the height but there's a good possibility it is taller.

Anyone heard if there will be an observation deck on the top? Might be another way to add a floor or two...
I hope, I think it would be a cool if it were enclosed like Shenzhen's KK100 with some sky gardens or whatever.

Perfect location for a view at that height too since it's so central

Nice find. I'm going to assume they are cutting larger condos for more micro luxury rentals.

Are the sides of this tower pleated in gold? It kind of looks that way in the rendering.

Probably, but doing this still leads to more probability of a design tweak, despite the fact that the recent article still says 1,422 (they can be wrong though).

It can't be that much more expensive to add on another 30+ feet. Then they can say they have the tallest building in Chicago (minus the Sears antennas), a more exciting place to live than the second tallest building in Chicago no doubt

Or just go for the title tallest building in North America. New York can’t have all the titles.

That would require another 150ft to top CPT and that would last for all, but a few months before another NYC supertall surpasses it. They are in a league of their own at this point.

I do agree that we should finally surpass Sears.

Hopefully this starts soon. One of the best designs planned in Chicago at the moment. Hopefully the scrutiny isn't insane for this tower, as it can really alter the skyline for the better.

Do you Chicago guys think a 2020 start date (sometime in that year) is plausible?

In the end, its not about titles. Chicago's skyline is a work of art. Quality over quantity. Like an artist that fine-tunes a work of art, good art takes time and thats what Chicago has. You have some aspects in your skyline that I wish we had here. Believe me, the amount of garbage that NY puts out is high. Don't let the shiny super talls fool you, we put out a lot of garbage towers. Fortunately many of them are masked.

Tribune Tower is stunning. We have this proposal called Tower Fifth, which will stain the skyline. Maybe its good that Chicago somewhat scrutinizes skyline altering towers, because once you get over 1200 ft, any crap tower can really damage the skyline.

Although from what I'm reading, IDK why they would scrutinize Tribune. I mean, how much better do they want it to get lol. Let's get the shovels ready on this one!!!

I'm gonna show my New York friend this. He'll hate it, but to an extent it's true. New York has always been Form follows Finance, which is an interesting interpretation on its own.

I feel that a start in late 2020 could be possible for this.

A while back I recall 'late 2019' start date or shortly after the Tribune conversion is over. I don't know what if anything has changed. Late 2019 seems rather unlikely though the Reilly 'deal in a couple of months' headline makes that interesting.

Does anyone know when the conversion is expected to be completed?

Can we skip the 1000 S Michigan and just build this one. I'm joking but that project bores me compared to this. Especially after they redid Helmut's design.

I remember the late 2019 start date as well, I believe from a Curbed article that came out after the initial showing of the project. This was a while back though, and considering the current work on converting Tribune Tower with the equipment in the parking lot, this would have to start near the end of the conversion.

Good point. I would also assume that lining up financing a 1,400-footer is no small feat.

Some (possibly promising) news out of Alderman Reilly's office:

"Over the past several months, Alderman Reilly has been working with the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and the Department of Transportation (CDOT) to identify creative solutions to address the many, significant concerns about loading, traffic impacts, the lower levels of Illinois Street and Michigan Avenue, open space and the aesthetic of the parking base.

In his negotiations with the Development Team, Alderman Reilly has secured their commitment to deliver on all of the changes and solutions proposed by the City. The upcoming presentation will offer neighbors an opportunity to see the significantly revised proposal, ask questions and offer feedback to the Alderman.

Alderman Reilly invites you to join him and the Streeterville Organization of Active Residents (SOAR) at an informational presentation regarding the revised proposal.

Representatives of the CIM and Golub development team will present their plans and answer any questions you may have about this development proposal.

WHAT: Tribune Tower East

WHO: Hosted by Alderman Brendan Reilly and SOAR

WHEN: Tuesday, November 19, 2019 from 6:00-8:00pm

WHERE: Sheraton Grand Chicago (301 E. North Water Street) - Chicago Promenade East"



I will be traveling for work but I hope some of you are there to provide some updates!

^ cool, a new public meeting, hopefully with new renderings!

and it's also a very good sign that this ball is still rolling along.

let's pray the tower hasn't been given too much of a haircut.

This is the rendering used in the newsletter for what it's worth. Also it doesnt seem like any concerns were based on height/number of units.

Indeed, good news

How do we know it's been given a haircut at all though? Last we heard there may be more units in the building.

Hmm would be fun to go to the meeting. I would be so nervous though if the design was changed because I love the current design so much lol
