The Curbed article says the new tower wouldn’t begin construction until completion of the Tribune Tower conversion, which it reported as taking 3 years. It’s already underway, having started in October 2017, meaning completion in 2020. So that would mean this potential supertall won’t get underway for a couple more years? One Chicago Square seems to be the exact opposite, working in a much more expedited manner... a lot can change with the economy over that extended timeframe.

Tribune Tower condo conversion, supertall addition in the works

Interior demolition within Tribune Tower has been underway since October. Its conversion to 165 residential units plus new lower level retail space is expected to take three years. The overhaul will be completed before work starts on the supertall addition. In the meantime, the new skyscraper will also need to secure zoning approval and financing.
