Chicago's Construction Boom: 52 High-Rises Under Construction

Chicago's Construction Boom: 52 High-Rises Under Construction

Chicago is in the midst of a historic building boom and it's most obvious downtown.

According to Curbed Chicago, the city is currently seeing a total of 52 high-rises under construction. Perhaps the most high profile of the projects is the Vista Tower, a supertall designed by Jeanne Gang for the New Eastside that will eventually host a hotel and condos.

But the boom isn't bound to the downtown area, it extends along the lakefront as far south as Hyde Park and as far north as Uptown.
