Jeanne Gang tower???

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

Confimed by a more mainstream source:

I'm even suprised how accurate my sketch was:

Simply brilliant exchange between LVDW and Pilsenarch. Pretty much spot-on. Bravo!

I'm not sure to be more impressed with your ability to sketch it or my ability to describe it...

oh, and it IS one building and continuous floor plates, more or less...

maybe if the smallest tower on the right was removed it would look a lot better, more slender, and a bit more composed. but honestly i do like the design, It would contrast the tallest buildings from the 70's very well. this is a first for Chicago, probably the most contemporary skyscraper in Chicago if built

i made some rough renderings of how the tower will look in the skyline, and what Chicago will look like if a number of large developments are constructed. the shapes arent completely accurate but the heights are! the models are just to show the impact it would have in the skyline. check it here! vvv

Quite an impact. Gives a peak to the area viewed from within the lake.

The 350-meter-high building, located near Chicago’s Millennium Park, will start being built this year and is expected to open to visitors in 2018 and will become the third-highest building in the city, according to the report.

Is this true? construction to start this year?

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?

Wow. This thing is gonna be huge! Can't wait to see better renderings. I'm really sick of blue glass; hopefully it gets darker. Idk. Cool massing though.

I understand the apprehension towards the design. It's definitely different, but it has an oddly "Chicago" flair to it...in the sense that these tube-like structures of three different heights are aligned in a row in a way that's not unlike the 9 bundled tubes of the Willis Tower. Kind of like a strange love-child between Willis and Trump. Also it's clear that this rendering is preliminary and that the design will likely be fine-tuned somewhat.

I'll wait and see. I just still want them to build The Chicago at Michigan and Roosevelt XD

I like the design AND the height! This spot is screaming for a supertall just like this!

But I can't help but feel "Where's the Spire?" (Hence, the Chicago Spire!)

I want to judge this negatively just as I judge the Spire negatively but in both I think the materials will look much different from the actual renders so this might be a masterpiece or a turd depending on the materials.
