This building is so awesome.

It's crazy to think that if we get lucky we could see another supertall this cycle to compliment it

Then we are lucky. Next one breaks ground in a matter of weeks.

Right although it basically is, I wasn't referring to that though, but rather the other three proposals.

I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a height bump for this (OCS) in the future...

Also Vista still looks amazing.

But even if we don't see more 984+ footers in this cycle, we are still guaranteed a decent number of fairly tall buildings, whose respectable heights and innovative designs will still significantly transform the Chicago skyline. No doubt Vista is the most innovative among them, but several others will/would look quite unique in Chicago as well.

If a building that is 983 ft tall ever gets built in Chicago, Zapatan will have a heart attack

Will this tower have a tuned mass damper?

I figured the blow through floor may be instead of that but 432 park ave. has both for example.

I originally thought it was just slightly distorted in the renderings but does anyone else see the top section not getting as narrow as the top of the lower frustums. Makes sense if the goal is to keep the top penthouses footprints as large as the ones below them. Still not sure but looking at the webcam today I think I see it.


Vista

I always thought from the renders that Vista was being exaggerated compared to it's neighbor's, but seeing it in person leaves little doubt.

Any news on the hotel operator? It seems like they'd have to know at this point.
