Project Description

FROM THE ARCHITECTS:

Defining a new edge of the city, Vista Tower tightly knits the Lakeshore East community to its environment with unprecedented urban connections and enhanced access to the Chicago River.

At ground level, the building creates an essential pedestrian connection between the Riverwalk and the community park’s outdoor recreational facilities. Retail, restaurant, and hotel amenities combine at the upper levels, creating a vibrant public social center—a microcosm of a city united.

Looking up from the river and park, the tower presents itself as three interconnected volumes of differing heights. Moving rhythmically in and out of plane, the overall flowing appearance of the building is the result of an alternating geometry between these three volumes. The building’s dimensions have the added benefit of accentuating corner views and allocating green space at various heights.
