800-foot Tower Planned for Wacker Drive

800-foot Tower Planned for Wacker Drive

It seems Chicago developers have gotten over their fear of heights, if they ever had one.

In the latest in a slew of recent high profile and high flying towers, Houston-based Howard Hughes Company and Chicago's Riverside Investment and Development have unveiled a proposal for an 800-foot office building for 110 N. Wacker. Designed by Goettsch Partners, it would ultimately feature 1,350,000 square feet of rental space and a new public space and riverwalk interface.

While not a residential project, the proposal is particularly notable because it would be the tallest office building built in the city in a quarter century.
