Proposed River North Skyscraper Unveiled

A 60-story skyscraper, the highest proposed for River North in a decade, was officially unveiled to residents of the neighborhood at a community meeting yesterday.

Named the Carillon, the 725-foot tower would contain 216 hotel rooms, 120 timeshares, 246 condos and 30,000 square feet of retail space.

Designed by Chicago's Skidmore Owings & Merril (SOM), the tower could bring more than a 1,000 construction jobs to the city and another skyline-altering project to the city.
