New Supertall Tower Could Be On Its Way to River North

Posted by Leo Clark. on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017 at 11:46am.

The proposed construction of two towers in River North could generate a new contender when it comes to the city’s tallest structures. A newly submitted application calls for one of the towers to rise 1,011 feet, or rather 76-stories. If all goes as planned, the development would make that building one of Chicago’s tallest.

The second tower is planned to rise up 45-stories high, or rather 583 feet. Altogether, the two buildings would deliver more than 900 new residential units, upwards of 650 parking spaces, and a large amount of retail and office space. There are reports that the residential units will include mostly rentals, but also some condos. 

While renderings of the project have not been publicly released, the two towers will rise from a shared, nine-story podium. The site sits just across the street from State Street’s Holy Name Cathedral. It’s the same location where the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago previously announced plans to develop a surface parking lot.
