The Windy City has dozens of projects over 100 feet tall currently in the works

As global skyscraper construction reached new recordsin 2017, Chicago is doing its part with 47 high-rise projects currently in the ground. Construction activity remains high, though the latest number represents a decline from the 54 active projects we tallied in late summer.

A big part of the decline was caused by a glut of new apartment developments coming online. In the past few months, eight such projects—The Sinclair, Gallery on Wells, EMME, 8 E. Huron, Spoke, 640 N. Wells, Hubbard 221, and The Aberdeen—delivered in excess of 2,000 rental units and dropped off our map.

While residential rentals continue to be the primary driving force behind the Windy City’s building boom, newly started projects include a pair of condo developments (56 W. Huron, Renelle on the River), a hotel (Home2 Suites by Hilton), and even a private school (GEMS phase 2).

1 Vista Tower

The 1,186-foot tall luxury hotel and condo tower from Chicago-based Magellan Development and China’s Dalian Wanda Group will eventually climb its way to the title of Chicago’s third tallest building when it is completed in 2020. Designed by starchitect Jeanne Gang, the riverfront project will deliver 210 luxury hotel rooms and 406 private condominiums priced between $1 million and $18 million.
