CHICAGO | One Chicago Square | 969 FT | 78 FLOORS | 574 FT | 49 FLOORS

This building was proposed around last October and it was approved on January 18th. Demo and piling should be underway soon. This is a huge development, especially for Chicago. Unfortunately, there are not very many updates that I come across for this development, so this thread will not be updated very often.

Let’s get to the facts!

  • 1011 feet (!!!) and a second building at 583 feet
  • 914 units | 200,000 sqft retail | 45,000 office | 659 parking
  • Developer is JDL --> Website
  • Zoning application

A few renderings and models:

My favorite new Chicago tower going up, unless the Tribune site has a better design.

With this, the Tribune Tower, and Wanda Vista, Chicago is on fire!
I live in Michigan so I’m not TOO far away from Chicago. I can’t wait to see when all of these are built

Unfortunately there’s some bad news too :frowning:
The tallest tower was knocked down from 1011 ft to 969 ft. Will not be a supertall. This is sad, but at the same time, I’m excited because this is a very tall building still!

I love the rendering on this one. Reminds me of the proposed Hudson’s Site in Detroit.
