There is some cladding up on the eastern tower (Cirrus?) the cladding looks like it's a bronze color while the western tower looks more copper.

Cirrus And Cascade Towers Continue Their Ascent In Lakeshore East

The 512-foot-tall Cirrus and its neighboring 396-foot-tall Cascade are approaching the halfway mark of their vertical climb in Downtown’s Lakeshore East neighborhood. Together with the nearby 93-story Vista Tower, the Lendlease and Magellan-backed towers form the latest chapter of the neighborhood’s 80-year transformation from a rail yard to a 21st-century residential nucleus.

The site for this first phase of the master plan sits between N Harbor Drive and Lake Shore Drive, and is just south of the multi-level Wacker Drive that runs along the Chicago River. Cirrus’ official address is 211 N Harbor Drive and Cascade’s address is 455 E Waterside Drive.

According to Curbed, Cirrus will house 363 condo units across its 47 floors, while Cascade will house 503 rental apartments across its 37 floors. The condominium units will begin at $400,000 and top off at around $4 million. Additional programming amongst the two is a parking podium that sits below N Harbor Drive and will service 589 cars. Together, the two towers will offer more than one million square feet of floor space.

BKL Architecture is responsible for the designs, while The Skyscraper Center lists James McHugh Construction Co and Lendlease Corporation as joint general contractors.

Although the towers will differ in their exact massings, but they complement each other. Their shared motif includes an asymmetrical setback near each roof and even more noticeably a distinct, serrated facade.

Cirrus and Cascade are both expected to open in 2021, as part of a larger development by Lendlease and Magellan to fill in Lakeshore East’s northeast corner. A third residential tower, dubbed “Parcel I,” will rise 950 feet tall and is planned to commence build next once current construction wraps up.

^^ Great pics! Although isn't the 512' / 396' figure outdated? It also mentions that Parcel I will start after these finish, I hope that's still true.

Couple drive by shots from today. . . glass looks good. . .

Anyone else not a fan of the brown vertical panels? The idea is good but I feel like they clash with the glass and would look better some sort of blue.

Great to see the progress though, I can see these being topped off Q4 this year

I could not disagree more and so does the color wheel, they are an orangey brown which is complementary to blue.

Imagine making this comment in the city where the Bears play. Blue and Orange are very complementary :haha:

To each their own but what's complementary for a sports team logo vs. a skyscraper could be very different. :shrug:

^I think the copper looks better on Cascade than the suede does on Cirrus, but the jury is still out until they're complete. . .

Agree on the copper, but I also like that there will be a contrast between the accent color on the two buildings, however slight to the average eye.

The most recent images showing the buildings side by side tells me that (although I prefer the copper) the smoked glass will be the real showpiece of the window-wall system. . . I love the accents, and am glad they used different colors for each tower. . . every time I look at them I'm liking it more and more. . .

Zapatan Aug 18, 2020 5:25 PM

Maybe it's the lighting / angle, but both facades looks better in that last picture.

Will there be some sort of park between the towers? Hard to tell from the renderings.

RedCorsair87 Aug 18, 2020 6:11 PM

I prefer the copper as well.

Does anyone have an idea the rate these towers are climbing? When can we expect TO?

chris08876 Aug 21, 2020 11:27 PM

Making an impact already.
