Saw this on SSC there was no reference to who created it but I thought I should share it here.

It's just that Gensler fantasy design. Pretty high quality rendering though, could easily be mistaken for an actual photograph.

Why......why do this to us? Related is going to put up a 900 ft bland box.

Make it law. Not only this site but Magellan's across the river have to be 2000 ft'rs.

My dream would be anything taller than Sears. Hell, if it's less than a 1000 ft, don't bother building it.

I agree, but what's being worked on now isn't anywhere close to that on Magellans's site... think 900' at most (probably less)

TimeAgain Feb 12, 2017 6:20 PM

What's the Magellan site?

Is it that crazy to think magellan and related could co-op on 2000' twins? Yeah a little tacky and no im not asking for a sky bridge, but what an entrance way to chicago. Or i could be completely wrong and these two companies hate each other?

LSE across the river.

This must have been a somewhat recent render. River Point Tower and 150 N Riverside are both complete in the photo. Or maybe someone was just playing around with the idea and now we're all anxious.

Where did you hear this? Back in June this was considered just a ballpark concept but had no relation in any way to Related Midwests vision for the site.

I was 95% sure of that but the other 5% was hoping I'd missed something

Can who ever did that render add Wanda Vista, One Bennet, Wolf Pointe, and the Adrian Smith Thompson Center!

First post!

I'm a plain architecture enthusiast with no actual technical or real-world knowledge of how these things work. That said, the connection to DuSable Park for public use right at the entrance to the river is a nice nod to the Burnham plan. Of course, I'd like Chicago to build buildings that, first and foremost, make the most sense. But anytime someone proposes (or even draws up plans for) a supertall tower in the 2,000 foot range, I'll always pay attention. Just build something cool here.

Adrian Thompson Center? At that point, you may as well as for them to just out the Chicago Spire on top of the Gateway Tower. It ain't happening.
