50 floors of concrete have been poured at Vista Tower. That’s the word we get from Agency H5, the PR firm handling announcements of such things for developer Magellan Development Group. They sent over a press release letting all of Chicago know of the big milestone.
You can read the entire press release after viewing the photo gallery below, which includes photos taken throughout the month of May. ***Caution: There are a lot of them. But you’re used to that by now. Highlights for me? A few shots taken in setting sunlight; anything from the Museum Campus; a puddlegram; and, as always, mooncranes.
Kudos to all involved, including McHugh Construction, Studio Gang, bKL Architecture, and of course, Magellan. Here’s to 50 floors more!
CHICAGO – June 7, 2018 – Concrete has been poured to the 50th floor for Vista Tower, marking a significant construction milestone. The sky’s the limit for one of the city’s most exclusive residences which continues to soar toward new heights (101 floors to be exact), with only a year and a half left until move-in.
“What makes Vista Tower so special is the brilliant minds collaborating on the construction and design of this world-class project,” said David Carlins, president, Magellan Development Group. “Globally-renowned architect Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang set a high standard with her remarkable vision, and all other participating firms, including Hirsch Bedner Associates and McHugh Construction Company, followed suit to exceed expectations.”
One of the most anticipated architectural projects within the United States, Vista Tower will be synonymous with ultimate luxury living in Chicago. While the exterior glass façade reflects the blue-green hue of the tower’s watery neighbors, Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, the interiors of each unit provide residents the choice between four specially-curated gem tone finishes: fluorite, amethyst, topaz and sapphire. Providing the most innovative touches for elite real estate buyers, purchasers can now schedule an appointment at the Vista Sales Gallery to be assisted through the finish selection process.
“Our future residents are captivated by the offerings at the 10,000 sq. ft. Vista Sales Gallery, which allows them to experience the extraordinary Vista Tower lifestyle and imagine the look and feel of their future home,” says Leila Zammatta, senior vice president of sales, Magellan Development Group. “I’m not surprised that the units are selling rapidly and we’re currently more than 40% sold because what we’ve created is quite exceptional in this market. We design aspirational, breathtaking spaces, so when a potential buyer fully appreciates what we’re offering at Vista Tower, he or she wants to call it home.”
Located on Upper Wacker Drive at the intersection of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, Vista Tower will be the crown jewel of the Lakeshore East neighborhood. Magellan Development Group built the award-winning, master-planned community to serve as an oasis from the bustle of downtown Chicago and a tranquil escape within the nation’s third-largest urban city.
Chicagoans and potential homeowners can watch the vision come to life as construction rapidly continues past the halfway point.
