Curtain wall to be installed on Vista Tower


The third tallest building in Chicago is about to become outfitted with some exterior glass. The 101-floor building at 363 E. Wacker Dr. will be abuzz with construction crews working to get the glass installed before inclement weather.

Curbed Chicago said six distinct shades of glass will be used for the exterior wall of the almost 1,200-foot tall condo/hotel skyscraper designed by Studio Gang and bKL Architecture.

Ground was broken for tower construction in 2016 and the building is earmarked to be open to residents and guests by 2020. The final section of the building will contain an unoccupied blow-through floor that is expected to less wind loads and reduce swaying of the building.
