Chicago, United States 23 July 2019

A 47-story condo tower known as Cirrus readies to break ground in Chicago. Located steps from Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, Maggie Daley Park, and the Chicago Riverwalk, the development will connect upper Harbor Drive to the Chicago Lakefront Trail with a sloping, landscaped park planned just to the north.

“The development will connect upper Harbor Drive to the Chicago Lakefront Trail with a sloping, landscaped park planned just to the north.”

Its developers have released a fresh batch of renderings showing interiors of the Lakeshore East project’s planned 363 units. Ranging from 650 to 3,000 square feet, the for-sale residences are priced from mid-$400,000 to $4 million. They are offered in mixed layouts, plus two town home residences at ground level and 15 penthouse units located on floors 42 through 47.

Pre-sales launched in April of 2019, and the initial response has been “positive,” according to a spokesperson from LendLease which is co-developing the project with Magellan.

The condo project is expected to break ground at 211 N. Harbor Drive in September, according to LendLease. It will rise simultaneously alongside a new 37-story, 503-unit apartment building slated for the parcel to the immediate west. Known as Cascade, this rental project was awarded its first construction permit on Friday.

Cascade and Cirrus will eventually be joined by a third, unnamed residential skyscraper which will rise 950 feet (290 meters) above Lake Shore Drive. The design of all three buildings comes from Chicago-based bKL Architecture.
