CHICAGO | 50 East Randolph Street (Parkline Chicago) | FT | 26FLOORS

Thomas Roszak Architecture Rendering of Parkline.

When complete, the 26-story Parkline Chicago will land 24 new condos, 190 new apartments, and 6,400 square feet of retail space on the northeast corner of Randolph and Wabash. Just a lemur’s leap from the L, a rooster’s run from the river, and a moose’s moo away from Millennium Park, this is one of the most convenient new locations we’ve seen in a while in Chicago.

Prices start at $1.5 million, square feet start at 2,136, and bedrooms start at three. The building is expected to be completed next year.

Unbuilt Skyscraper in Chicago

Minglin-Beitler Skyneedle

https://www.emporis.com/buildings/103012/miglin-beitler-skyneedle-chicago-il-usa

Proposed Location: 201 W Madison St Proposed in 1988 as the tallest building in the world (surpassing the Willis Tower by 550 feet) it was canceled during the Persian Gulf War, which aligned with a real estate market crash. Architect Cesar Pelli did go on to build the world’s tallest building at the time, the Petronas Twin Towers. But don’t fret. You can always buy a picture of the model of what the Miglin-Beitler Skyneedle was going to look like.

The Illinois

Proposed location: lakefront site near the Adler Planetarium The sheer ambition of this Frank Lloyd Wright project still astounds. Proposed in the 1950s, its mile-high 548 stories would’ve been twice as tall as anything standing today. Consider this: Some of the plans for the tower were 26 feet high. Of course, lots of things got in the way of this project (most would argue physics was one of them). But even if you don’t get this tower, you can drink Goose Island Brewing Co’s IPA “The Illinois,” which is an homage to the skyscraper. And 9% ABV at that.
