Stunning Jeanne Gang Design
Vista Tower represents the freshest and most attention-grabbing addition to Chicago’s world-class skyline since Aqua Condos were completed a few years ago. Both were designed by Chicago’s own Jeanne Gang.
At first glance it’s easy to see that Vista Tower Condos are the crown jewel of the Downtown Chicago luxury condo world. And at a construction expected to top $1 billion, that’s to be expected.
Tallest Structure In The World Designed By A Woman
When finished in 2020, Vista Tower will feature 396 luxury condominiums and 192 upscale hotel rooms in the Wanda Vista 5-star hotel. And at 1,191 feet tall, it will be Chicago’s third-tallest building and the tallest structure in the world designed by a woman.
As a reminder, the first and second tallest buildings in Chicago are the 1,453-foot-tall Sears Tower (currently called Willis Tower) and the 1,388-foot Trump International Hotel and Tower.
Prices Start At About $1 Million
Vista Tower is actually made up of three interconnected towers of three heights; 47, 71, and 93 stories. The building design accentuates corner views and provides for green space at multiple heights.
We especially like the use of six different shades of blue tinted glass. It makes the building just shimmer and reflect the beauty of the lake and the sky.
As is the case for most Chicago luxury condos, prices at Vista Tower start at just under $1 million. Browse all Chicago luxury real estate for sale.
Prime Lakeshore East Location
The Lakeshore East section of Chicago’s New East Side neighborhood offers residents a vibrant and idyllic lifestyle. For instance, live here and enjoy easy access to Gems World Academy, a six-acre public park and the super popular village market.
Standing right where Lake Michigan meets the Chicago River, Vista Tower is in the midst of everything that makes Chicago a world-class city.
For example, just outside your door is the lakefront with all its activities including the harbor and the wonderful lakeside biking / walking path.
Moreover, there’s also the nearby Chicago River Walk and the world-famous Millennium Park. The area is always alive with energy and activities throughout the year.
In addition, let’s not forget all the fabulous shopping along the Magnificent Mile! And, of course there are always the latest cultural exhibits at the Art Institute and other nearby museums and galleries.

Wow! The Views
As you might expect given its name, height and location by the lake, Vista Tower’s views don’t disappoint. In fact, they are indeed some of the best views in all of Chicago.
And we know that’s saying something given the fierce competition in the Chicago luxury condo segment.
Distinctive Interior Design
The interior design of each unit was created by well-known interior design specialists Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA).
There are four distinct finish palettes Amethyst, Topaz, Sapphire and Fluorite from which to choose.
Kitchen appliances are top of the line. For example, Gaggenau and Thermador. Plus, the cabinetry is Snaidero. In addition, the flooring is wide plank hardwood.
Wide Variety Of Options
Vista offers the Chicago luxury condo buyer a wide variety of floor plans from which to choose. These include 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 bed room options.
Here’s a brief overview of the three levels at Vista Tower:
River & Park Residences
From floor 13 – 46 are the Vista River & Park Residences. On these levels there are 8 to 9 units per floor.
From floor 47 – 71 are the Lake Residences. On these levels there are 4 to 5 units per floor.
Sky 360 Residences
Sky 360 Residences, Vista Tower’s full-floor penthouses, start on the 71st floor and bring the luxury penthouse experience to a new level for Chicago.
These incredible residences have amazing features. For instance, 11-foot ceilings, uninterrupted 360-degree views across the entire city via floor-to-ceiling windows with motorized window treatments. In addition, there’s individually controlled heating and cooling, wide plank hardwood floors, keyless entry and so much more.
5-Star Wanda Vista Hotel
In addition to the luxury condos described above, there is also the 5-star Wanda Vista hotel which is accessed via a separate entrance.
The hotel rooms occupy floors 2 – 12. The hotel’s 5-star amenities are located on floors 10 and 11 and are available to Vista Tower condo residents as well as hotel guests.
Vista Tower condos present one of the best options for those interested in owning a premier Chicago luxury condo.
