01 CHICAGO TOW­ER­ING AM­BI­TION

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

Plan­ning per­mis­sion has been granted for the Howard Hughes Cor­po­ra­tion to build a 51-storey tower at a prom­i­nent river­front lo­ca­tion. Billed as “a dy­namic ad­di­tion to Chicago’s iconic sky­line”, the 325,000-square me­tre Goettsch Part­ners-de­signed tower will be wrapped in a high-per­for­mance alu­minium and glass cur­tain wall, to pro­vide sweep­ing views up and down the river. It will fea­ture a range of ameni­ties, in­clud­ing a con­fer­ence cen­tre, re­tail and din­ing op­tions, fit­ness fa­cil­ity and state-of-the-art build­ing sys­tems. The tower will take two-and-a-half years to build but no date has yet been set for con­struc­tion to be­gin.
