Chicago architects share visions of Vista penthouses

10-Oct-16Jeanne Gang designed the building but now other architects are being invited to share their ideas for the interiors of the top 21 floors of Vista Tower.

Sky 360 Residences, offering 360-degree views from floors 73-93, according to Magellan Development, “will feature some of the most opulent amenities and condominiums found in the world.”

On floors 92 and 93 will be a single two-level, 7,000 square foot residence. Smaller units will average between 5,500 and 6,700 square feet, each with 11’4” ceilings.

A Chicago architect, Dirk Denison, and interior designer Suzanne Lovell were the first invited to prepare a design brief on how they would develop the residences.

“The idea that there is a proverbial blank canvas for every resident to have their own space and create something reflective and unique to other floors is incredible,” says Denison, whose design appears in the Fall issue of No Parallels, the official magazine of Vista Residences.

When completed in 2020, Vista Tower will be the third-tallest building in Chicago.
