Chicago | Lakeshore East Parcel I | 950 ft | 85 floors

t’s worth noting that the 950-foot figure does not include Parcel I’s upper mechanical penthouse and architectural screening. More importantly, it is unclear if the 950-foot measurement from “ground level” is indeed taken from the dirt or an elevated position atop of the development’s parking podium along Harbor Drive.

If the latter proves to be the case, the final height could push well past the 984-foot official “supertall” threshold established by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. Chicago currently has just a single supertall building under construction the 1,198-foot Vista Tower hotel and condo development, also located in Lakeshore East.


I think it’s actually parcel “i”


oh heck yes!!! This makes me so happy! So many good towers are going up in Chi right now. I miss it so much :frowning:


From my 3D model of Chicago


„ Referencing the phasing of the development, groundbreaking for Parcel I could begin in 2021 or 2022 after the completion of Cirrus and Cascade, which are expected to be completed in 2021.“
