Just some features of Vista (units). It appears all the cheaper one's have been taken. Not that 800-900k is cheap, but it is for a tower of this magnitude. Hell, 800k will get you a closet in my kneck of the woods, especially with super tall residential towers.


If we all pitch in, we can buy a nice unit. One for 6 million. Just divide the keys and alloted time by how many buyers. So do 365 days / "X" amount of buyers. That will determine how much time we can spend in the tower per year. We'll all split the HOA and taxes/fees. Common guys, lets do it!!!

Seriously, I love this building and it was so close to being a master piece but those black bands are an epic fail that really detracts from the rest of the building. It looks like a document where portions have been redacted. I fear it may get the nickname redacted tower.

Well, Lake Point Tower has an unusually short floor-to-floor height.

Speaking of floors, Vista has 101 floors from the ground, but 95 floors from street level. Somehow the Diagrams page uses the latter number. Would one of the admins please change that to 101 floors? Chicago is one of the only two cities in the world to have three buildings with at least 100 floors. Would be nice to highlight that on the Diagrams page. Thanks.
