We are thrilled to share that Vista Tower was recently featured in The New York Times in a piece highlighting the city’s uncontested sky-high buildings and famous architecture tours, which now boasts a new downtown center for locals and visitors alike.

As high-rise condos and luxury condominiums continue to break ground throughout Chicago, it’s the iconic Vista Tower that is forever changing the city’s skyline and reshaping the way we think about super tall skyscrapers.

The New York Times story dives into the recent developments made to the Chicago Architecture Tour, which was rated the #1 activity in Chicago on TripAdvisor. The boat tour takes guests down the handmade Chicago river to see stunning, diverse and conceptually tricky buildings not found elsewhere – such as the renowned Wrigley Building, famed Lyric Opera House and Marina City. Soon to be fully completed, Vista Tower rounds out the tour and has been labeled as a key stop in guests’ “Instagrammable itinerary.”

While still under construction, Vista Tower’s many shades of blue and unique exterior already adds to the city’s architectural dialogue. Designed by Chicago architect Jeanne Gang, once completed Vista Tower will be the world’s tallest skyscraper designed by a female-owned firm.

By finishing the Chicago Architecture Tour with views of Chicago’s soon-to-be third tallest building, locals and tourists get to conclude their experience with an exceptional representation of Chicago’s next chapter in contemporary architecture. Though guests see many buildings and representations of the ages of architecture on the Chicago Architecture Tour, there is only one Vista Tower.
