What the Studio Gang-Designed Wanda Vista Supertall Means for Chicago

Last night, over 500 people packed a ballroom at the Radisson Blu hotel in the Studio Gang-designed Aqua tower in Chicago to get a first glimpse and learn more about a new supertall tower also designed by Studio Gang for the Lakeshore East neighborhood. The project's public debut started off on a somewhat mysterious note, with news about the tower coming from China last July, and much speculation about Jeanne Gang's involvement. Any remaining shrouds of mystery regarding the condo and hotel tower were dispelled last night as a panel of stakeholders described the project at length to a packed ballroom. Standing at a height of roughly 1,200 feet with an estimated cost of nearly $1 billion, the proposed Wanda Vista is poised to become a very important and pivotal development for Chicago.
