For everyone excited to see Chicago's newest supertall skyscraper come to life and climb skyward, the wait will be long but work is definitely progressing to deliver this skyline-changing masterpiece to life.
Since the Jeanne Gang-designed tower officially broke ground two months ago, workers have been making progress on the Vista's foundation, a process that should take about eight months in total before allowing the tower to rise skyward. The development, which will ultimately include 406 high-end condos and a nearly 200-room hotel is expected to be completed by 2020.
The development is a joint venture between Magellan Development and Chinese firm Dalian Wanda Group. It represents a $1 billion investment in Chicago's New Eastside.
