Love the part about cost to live near top, $10M to 18M per unit.

Yeah, I hope they don't leave the concrete bare like that. Makes it look like they forgot to build a floor.

I clicked on the the link provided by flamadiddle. Was glad to read that Jeanne Gang and her design team, Studio Gang, are credited as the architects of Vista Tower.


This is the same team which designed my favorite recent addition to the Chicago skyline, The Aqua Tower.

Beautiful building. I didn't realize Jeanne Gang was born in Belvidere, IL!

Given prices I wonder how many of these units were purchased for money laundering purposes. Real estate is a big money laundering factor...read the book Billion Dollar Whale...true story and great read.

I also wonder how many people bought in early to try and flip once complete. Toews and some others did that at No. 9 Walton (the building where the top 4 floors were bought by Ken Griffin...richest guy in IL).

The blow through floor should have some final sort of grating system added. It won't be bare concrete I can assure you.
