The Vista Tower is a truly magnificent new architectural project, set to be constructed in the already skyscraper-laden city of Chicago, that will be the third tallest building in that city. However, the most noteworthy aspect of this particular skyscraper will be the fact that it will play home to the single highest concentration of 360-degree-view full-floor penthouses in the USA.

Designed by local architectural practice Studio Gang, the Vista Tower will boast 95 floors and will rise to a height of around 366 meters. It will feature a unique, staggered design that will include four vertical volumes at the base that extend up to different heights. This gives the building an unusual appearance that will make it stand out in the Chicago skyline.

Ultimately, Vista Tower is a project that takes full account of visual aesthetics -- both from the point of view of residents who will occupy its full-floor penthouses, and citizens and tourists who will gawk at the tower from afar.
