Does Magellan Development’s Vista Tower Deliver on Views?  See For Yourself!

If Magellan Development names a new building “Vista,” it should probably have some decent views.  And if that building is located on the Chicago River, those views should be somewhat above average.  And if the building is 95 stories tall, the views really almost certainly should be singularly spectacular, right?

We’re happy to report: Correct on all counts.

Joe Zekas, of YoChicago!, went up to the 70-somethingth floor of Lakeshore East’s soon-to-be-tallest skyscraper a few days ago, and sent us visual proof that the Vista Tower does, indeed, deliver vistas.  Marvelous vistas.  Incredible vistas.  Vistas so sweet, your dentist is thinking about buying a new boat.  Vistas so grand, a certain canyon in Arizona is going to have to be renamed.  Vistas so first-class they get complimentary Bollinger, socks, and pillow spray when flying Etihad.

Vistas that would make a Boy Scout toss a nun under a Sun-Times truck.  Or something like that.

Want proof?  Here’s more proof than Polish vodka:

Location: 363 East Wacker Drive, The Loop
