This imbalance will get even more pronounced because the Lakeshore East development is not done yet. It will add a near-supertall to the foreground of this photo:

It likely will be a supertall.

In any case won't Tribune balance it out a bit? Or will that be on the left side of the river (in the picture)?

Tribune will be on the right side of the picture (behind the Loews Hotel) so it will definitely help with the feng shui, so to speak. We also have 400 LSD in the pipeline as well, which will help the north side of the river.

In addition to that, there are a few prime lots to the immediate north and south of NBC Tower as well (and a lot on Columbus and Grand), so assuming those don't get squandered on some short/underwhelming developments, there's probably a good chance things will balance out. Considering they are among the last developable spots in this part of the central area, I think the cost of the properties will easily justify large developments, as long as the alderman/NIMBYS don't do what they do best.

Right, forgot about how close that is. If all those projects get built the river view will be insane.

A lunchtime walk can take me past the Tribune site, the Spire site, cross the river, Cirrus/Cascade, St Regis, and then 300 N Michigan. With down the street views of One Chicago and down the river views of Sales Force tower.

Yes of course, but LSE Parcel I will be built first, so the imbalance will get worse before it gets better. Also, Parcel I is almost guaranteed to happen, while the Tribune Addition is less certain.

I was under the impression that both would be starting either later this year or in 2022 after Tribune renovation and C&C towers completion (Parcel I).

Someone should make a rendering with all those proposed/completed buildings in the above photo.

The imbalance has always been there; Streeterville is decades behind because it took decades for the city to begin building north of the river. That’s just the way it is.

A little green only adds to its appeal from the river! St Regis looking as good as ever on St Paddy's

This is a very rough one I did back in 2017:

I think Tribune is too short, and the 400 LSD towers aren't this tall anymore.

rgarri has done this in his Chicago model. Skip to 1:13 of his video on 400 LSD for a view close to this vantage point.

The first photo is the one everyone is going to try to capture from now until the tower’s end.

Standing under a Studio Gang tower always provides a treat. They clearly think about the up close impression.

This turned out even nicer than I expected from the renderings.
