Don't adjust your screen! The building was designed this way. This is the Vista Tower (straight ahead) as seen as we were driving north on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago.
Vista Tower is a 101-story, 1,198 ft (365 m) supertall skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois. Construction started in August 2016 and occupancy is expected to start in 2021. Upon completion, Vista Tower will become the city's third-tallest building at 1,198 ft (365 m) and the tallest structure in the world designed by a woman.
Designed by architect Jeanne Gang and her architectural firm, Studio Gang Architects, Vista Tower will complement the design of the nearby Aqua skyscraper, also designed by Gang, as the two tallest structures in the world designed by a woman. Vista Tower will cost nearly $1 billion to construct.
The structure consists of three interconnected towers with differing heights. According to Studio Gang Architects, the tower "presents itself as three interconnected volumes of differing heights, moving rhythmically in and out of plane" as a result of the curvilinear design. Vista Tower will contain nearly 400 condominium residences, and a five-star Wanda Vista Hotel with around 200 hotel rooms. The Wanda Vista Hotel will be located on the first 11 floors, while the condos will be located between floors 13 and 93. Additional floors are occupied by mechanical space and parking.
