“This is truly a ‘born-in-Chicago’ project, and we are excited to be a part of this amazing architectural wonder. We’ve been in discussions with [developer] Magellan for several years to determine how we can best partner on this project, and we look forward to bringing our vision to life,” said Nick Kokonas, Co-owner and Co-founder of The Alinea Group.

The Vista condominiums will become The Residences at The St. Regis Chicago. They’ll consist of 393 condos, offering residents the ultimate luxury living experience, complete with a resident-only amenity floor. Standing at 101 stories, The Residences at The St. Regis Chicago will offer residents breathtaking views of the river, Lake Michigan and the city.
